ELEVATION GAIN: 900 ft

DIFFICULTY RATING: Moderate

**RSVPS will open at 7:00pm Wednesday**
CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 90 miles (including the car shuttle), give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $9.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!
Who’s afraid of hiking in the rain? Not me! We’ll set up a car shuttle between the Bridge of the Gods and Herman Creek, then starting from B.O.G. we’ll hop onto the PCT southbound to see the sights, namely Dry Creek Falls, the Herman Creek Pinnacles, Pacific Crest Falls, and Herman Creek, just to name a few.
Just a nice mellow hike in the rain (hopefully) followed by a burger and a beer.
