Attention "Waterfall Lovers" in 2019 I plan to hike to 1 or more Waterfalls every weekend (wet or dry) weather permitting.
Last Saturday we started with Harding Canyon, great hike but a little disappointed with the lack of water flow.
Hopefully with the predicted rain in forecast the water flow will improve.

Rain at go time cancels this hike.

This hike is not recommended for first time hikers that are unfamiliar with my Waterfall/Canyon hikes. this hike involves rock scrambling, some bouldering, maneuvering up/over/around dead fall and other obstacles, and possible bush whacking. For your safety KNOW YOUR ABILITY AND LIMITATIONS and be prepared !

On all my outings I trust everyone to read the write-up and arrive informed and prepared.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for briefing and intro's. We will start our hike promptly at designated time (8:am) and will not hold up group for latecomers.
