Greg was an outstanding guide. The river crossing was awesome and nobody acquired hypothermia or fell into Bear Creek River. The view was awesome from the rim. Jackson was a great companion. Looking forward to more hikes. I learned a few new things today: Diamond Blaze and Cairn (correct spelling). The wild turkeys were beautiful.

Hello Everyone.... Getting Cited for this Hike? Hope So! FYI - did this one on Friday with a sm group, 32 degrees, in the snow. FUN, actually! Anyway, Bear Creek is up and will most likely remain so until we get to cross it. So count on a nice icy foot bath. :-) Bring some light creek shoes to wear in water is a suggestion, Hiking stick or Treking poles are nice and either shorts or pants that will roll up or zip off. Water was appx 2 ft deep on Friday. Lastly, Fret not, We will teach you safe stream crossing techniques. :-)
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call me. Look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones!
Greg.....aka - S'do :-)

Hello fellow adventurers, had someone ask about the river crossing , so thought should post this. We have a-lot of water up here so, yes...we are going to be crossing a river. (Knee deep more or less - depends) That is one of reasons this hike is rated "difficult." Are you Smiling? So, one can go barefoot and some people do, but I suggest that folks have some sort of water shoes to wear cause it is slippery. Sandals, Old Tennis Shoes, Crocs, whatever. Also a walking stick or treking poles would be handy as well to help keep you from falling. Fret not, We will teach you safe stream crossing techniques.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call me.
Happy Stream Crossing Trails,
