The Gap and on to Waukena Point, an upside down balloon hike!

I have been thinking its time to do a little hiking again. Work has been rough lately. Join me on a little climb up a rock field to the Gap. We will continue on up to the Indian Pits on Waukena Point. here we return to the Gap but go down the other side to McCord Creek Falls.

Difficult due to loose rocks and steep slopes. Poison Oak is starting to bud so be prepared for that to. Light Gloves may come in handy.

Mileage is about 7 miles or so but all up up up!

On this one, I will be asking questions of anyone I haven't hiked with before and perhaps even if I have.

Danger involved. not too many except rolling rocks, possible falling rocks and getting lost. You have to stay close to the group.

as always, if you have problems with exposure, heights, getting dirty this hike is not for you! And don't ask to be back by 4 pm.

Bring the usual gear.

No guests without a email, please.

    It's OK Rick. We're at the threshold of an entire season of adventures ... can't wait to see what comes next!

    Hmmm, work seems to be getting in the way of having fun. I hear you Rick - I work on Sunday, but will keep Saturday available in case it works out.

    I may have to change to Sunday due to work issues. I wont know until friday late. If this is an issue you may want to find another hike. Just been super busy lately.

    I don't exactly remember, its about 2600 ft I think. The weather looks good so far. I should say its down down down to.
