End of Summer Hike - Shhhh - It's a Secret

  • Aug 31, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please read the entire description.  The destination will be revealed at the end.  Only RSVP to the hike you intend to do (or you can do both).

Meet at 11:30 for picnic.  Hike starts at about 1pm.



This is an end of summer celebration of all that we have done over this past year, especially this summer.  If you have been a regular attendee at our meet ups (either the week end hikes or the weekday evening hikes) you are invited to attend.

This meet up is not available to first time attendees (so get out and join us if you want to come).

There will be 2 hikes in the same area. I will do one in the morning and one in the afternoon and we will convene for a picnic in between.  You can do both hikes or just choose one. Both hikes will be under 4 miles RT, one easy one a little more challenging.

I would like to have a separate leader that would be willing to lead one or the other at the opposite time of me so then we could actually have 2 groups going at once,  One at either location , thus increasing the number of participants allowed. Does this make sense?

Please bring proper hiking gear for yourself and your dogs (dogs on leash), and a pack lunch for our picnic -unless somebody wants to get ambitious and is willing to volunteer to set up something more elaborate with cooking gear.

What is the afternoon hike you ask: Big Four Ice Caves

    It was fun to do two great little hikes. Neither wore me out too badly and taking a nice relaxing break in between and enjoying a picnic at an actual picnic table and shelter was very refreshing. Beautiful day and the number of people out today was impressive. Many families and all ages are able to do this hike.

      I think they are 5 dollar day pass or 30 annual. You can purchase at big 5 sports, Fred Meyer, rei, or online . As well I think at the ranger station on the way in verlot.

    I am doing the early hike and hope to be at the picnic area at about 11:30, We will have lunch and then hike so if you are running late you should be able to meet us.
    You do need a nw forest pass for this trailhead.
    I do not have cell service past granite falls so you wont' be able to get a hold of me. I think you all know who I am.
    If you get to the picnic area early grab a picnic table and I will look for you. If you see my blue Hyundai Tucson in the parking lot then look for me at a picnic table.
    Weather looks good
    Have a safe drive and see you tomorrow.

    If any of you are 60+ and don't have your golden whatever pass, you can pick one up at Verlot Ranger Station.

      Sorry to hear. I don't know why it won't let you change your rsvp when the meet up is full.
