TRIP LEADER:   Park Greer

 

                               THIS IS A STRENUOUS HIKE

                      NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS

 

Join Park for an 11.6 mile hike along the Collins Gulf Loop.  This will be a strenuous hike, and is not for beginners.   The group will hike through the beautiful Collin’s Gulf and up the Historic Stage Coach Road before returning on the Collin’s Rim trail.  This is a difficult trail, with loose footing in some areas and some strenuous climbs in others.  There will be overlooks, waterfalls, and cascades as rewards, though.


Please be prepared by bringing plenty of water, a lunch/snacks, and wear sturdy shoes.  You will need to make sure to keep hydrated and fueled for a hike like this.  Due to the loose footing in some areas, you will also want to wear sturdy hiking footwear.  Trekking poles are optional if you have them and enjoy using them, but are not required.
