This hike is a level, easy and up to 8 miles in length, following the shores of Big Lake or Horr Pond and Tule River. The entire area is part of the migratory route of several species of Canadian Geese, Blue Herons and maybe some Osprey.
We will probably follow the Horr Pond & Tule River route, covering 6 miles.
McArthur is about 74 miles from Redding on 299. The trailhead is another 3-4 miles. To reach the trailhead go 299 to McArthur, north on Main Street past the fairgrounds to a dirt road. At .5 mile go right and pass thru a gate. The road continues north another 3 miles to the parking area.
After the hike we can stop in McArthur or Fall River for a cold drink & burger before calling it a day and heading home.
