The hike: Folks I did this hike last summer and it's a really nice hike and easy to moderate. We'll be starting on the Timber Trail and doing some combination of the Well Gulch, Howard Loop and/or Overlook trails. We may even run shuttle vehicles and do a hike from point A to point B. At any rate the hike won't be over 8 miles.
