Hike will start at the Visitor Center parking lot at 8:30 AM, with a 45 min loop of the North Grove of giant sequoias, returning to the Visitor Center around 9 AM. From there we will hike in varying mountain habitats, along pine forest ridges, down to the river, and under the lava bluffs. The distance will be 15+ miles. Bring water and food for the day, and prepare for the weather. Please contact the leader before coming to the hike.
