When: Sat., June 23, 10:45 a.m. 2018
The North Group Sierra Club invites the public to a 1.5 mile hike on the Lytel Ridge Trail in Ferndale's Russ Park on Saturday, June 23. Carpools meet at 10 a.m. at the Elk River Road/Herrick Park & Ride lot (off of Highway 101 south) or meet at 10:45 at trailhead at Russ Park. Climb switchbacks in Ferndale’s “verdant wilderness park,” through thickets of thimbleberry and passing scenic look-outs of the Eel River Valley, shady canyons filled with fern and a pond in a Sitka spruce forest. We will lunch in a redwood, grand fir, and alder grove and then return passing through a eucalyptus grove. Wear long sleeves and pants because of poison oak and stinging nettles. Bring water (extra for dog) and lunch. Friendly dogs OK on leash. Contact leader Allison at 707-268-8767 if you need more info. Rain cancels.
