When: Sat., Aug. 17, 8 a.m. 2019
Eight-mile medium difficulty hike in the Smith River National Recreation Area on the South Kelsey National Recreation Trail. Hikers will explore a portion of the nascent Bigfoot Trail. From the trailhead just off the never-completed but well-paved G-O Road, the hike will pass Buck Creek and the Summit Valley Trail junction to Eightmile Creek and return. Giant cedars and other wonders await. Dress for sunny summer weather and a possible swim. Bad weather may cancel. Bring lunch, a hat, and water. No dogs. Carpools meet at 8:00 a.m. at Ray’s Valley West shopping center in Arcata. Contact leader Ned for more information: 707-825-3652 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
