Time for an action-packed trip to the Richland Creek Wilderness area!
This area is one of the most beautiful areas in the Buffalo River area, yet also very rugged and remote. This trip is designed for experienced hikers. This meetup is restricted to a small group size due to the nature of this hike.
On Saturday 3:30pm we’ll leave from Richland Creek Campground, BACKPACKING to the falls to spend the night.
The next morning we’ll rapidly day-hike toTwin Falls, as well as up to the Sandcastle (without packs). The ascend and descend to the sandcastle is very, very steep and long. You must be in good shape and have ankle-supporting hiking boots. I strongly recommend the use of trekking poles and water shoes, especially for crossing thigh-deep fast-moving water. Flip flops won’t do, promise.
A few climbers will be meeting early Saturday for climbing at their own risk. Contact me if you are interested. As usual, all participation is at your personal risk.
