  • May 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM

SURF AND TURF…BLUE RIDGE (SS Craigin) Reservoir Paddle and Hike - Mogollon Rim

('Not attending' RSVP's are unnecessary)

Fri - Sun, May 17 - 19
Leader: Leigh Dechaine ([masked])

Length: Various

RSVP required by DIRECT e-mail by May 15th, directions to camp site will be provided upon your confirmed participation
Recommend car camp Friday night, contact hike leader for directions.

We will start early on Saturday morning (6:30). Paddle 5 miles, tie-up and then hike up a ridge (no trail) and intersect a forest road and hike 2 miles to the War Monument. Upon returning from our hike we'll then return 5 miles via watercraft.

 To those wanting to stay Saturday night we can do the other leg of the reservoir Sunday morning after camping.

Don’t have a canoe or kayak? I have several options for renting - contact hike leader. Camping and lake access at no charge. Trout fishing should be hot, so bring gear. Water, Chemical Toilets are available at Rock Crossing Campgrounds, about a mile from where we will camp.

Undoubtedly a stop at Pine is in the cards on the way to/from the outing.

    Wonderful trip! My first time to Blue Ridge reservoir, too!
    Leigh did a bang-up job in leading the paddle/hike - it was a blast.
    I know that I appreciate the time and effort that our hike leaders take to show us a good time; I hope that the remaining Club membership does as well.

    Please remember that to attend, participants will need to contact the hike leader directly - he does not monitor meetup, so your "attending" notation here will not be noted by the hike leader.
    Google "Blue Ridge Reservoir" for general location and overview.
