This Meetup is cancelled

CANCELLED Duncan Creek - Zeno Canyon Waterfalls Hike/Exploration

  • Albertsons

    6560 S. Federal Way, Boise, ID (map)

  • CANCELLED. Duncan Creek - Zeno Canyon Hike.

    Too much rain has fallen yesterday and some already today not allowing those dirt roads to dry up in time. I think we should reschedule this one for another day when there’s no rain forecasted during the week. The hike/explore would have been fine, but reaching the canyon on the dirt roads would have been another thing altogether

     Your Safety Is Your Own Responsibility

    Dependant on weather (dirt roads of the Owyhees)

    LET'S SEE IDAHO SERIES, taking you to some of the best places in Idaho

    I am ONLY searching for a handful of explorers who does NOT have to be back in the treasure valley at a specific time. High clearance vehicles highly recommended

    This is one I have been wanting to do, but haven't. So no guarantees if we will get in a significant amount of hiking or if it will be just more of a road trip. I always try to find somewhere to get some hiking in

    INTERMEDIATE HIKE. NOTE before RSVPing

    1. Be prepared for and be in good physical condition just in case we encounter areas of water (creek crossings and pools) that we might have to go through, areas of NO existing trails, areas that "might" be very steep and have extremely challenging terrain, areas of scrambling, using hands for balance, being on loose rocks (scree), bushwhacking, and on off-angle valley sides

    2. Be cautious of rattlesnakes and poison ivy. Ignoring safety precautions in this harsh environment can result in dangerous consequences. Preparation and self-sufficiency are key factors for successful and safe hikes in this rugged terrain

    THE PLAN this particular event is to just spend the day exploring the area and be in NO HURRY to get to any destination point or to get back to the treasure valley at any specific time. We can have lunch sometime on the trail

    MEET in parking lot of Albertsons off Federal Way. Address and map link above

    CONTACT Jerry at 830-8793. 4 door silver Chevy Colorado

    BRING lunch/snacks, plenty of water to last you throughout the day, sunscreen/hat, handkerchief, camera, binoculars, etc

    NO restroom facilities at the trailheads

    WEAR sturdy hiking shoes/boots/gear and have layer clothing for rapid weather changes

    There may or may not be rattlesnakes, ticks, poison ivy, stinging nettle, wild rose bushes, etc

    COSTS 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive one way, approximately 110 miles one way including several dirt roads which some of them could be rutted and washboarded. We all should share in the expense of gas and graciously give a “minimum” of $10.00 EACH to whoever is doing the driving of the carpooling

    Where do you keep coming up with these great hikes, Jerry? One of these times I'll actually not be booked and can join in. Keep it up!
