  • This location is shown only to members

Difficulty Level: Moderately difficult; it depends on what kind of shape you're in. 

Exposure: Mostly shady

Distance: About 5 miles/800 ft elevation gain.

Trail conditions: Steep, rugged and narrow in places. Ticks and poison oak. No restrooms

Duration: About 3 hours

Rain will cancel 

Dogs are not allowed in Fall Creek 

Route: We'll start at the trail head from the parking lot and descend to the intersection where we'll cross the bridge going over the creek (this is different from what we usually do). From there we'll turn left onto the Ridge Trail where we'll begin a sustained climb that could be considered difficult. If you're not comfortable with a sustained climb, this hike isn't for you. At the top we'll connect with the S-Cape Trail and make our way back down to the Fall Creek Trail to the Barrel Mill area where we'll stop for a rest before beginning our return trip. 

This is an "at risk" activity. By joining us on this hike you agree to hold the organizer and other members harmless. You are responsible for your own safety on the hike. Time and distance may vary.

    I've got some stuff to get done tomorrow so I decided to take an earlier hike. Enjoy! Hope to see you all on another hike soon.
