If you can't take the heat, this hike is for you! We'll start out on the Rock Bridge trail, splash around at Creation Falls and do some creek walking under Rock Bridge. We'll then head north on Swift Camp Creek trail. This trail meanders through the Clifty Wilderness and offers an incredible variety of landmarks, including Hell's Kitchen, Tofu Rock, Sausage Wall and Don Juan's Garden. The hike includes cliffs and drop-offs, creek crossings, hemlocks and rhododendron thickets. The terminus is the Angel Window parking lot, so we'll need to shuttle cars.

Length: 9-10 miles

Rating: Moderate to strenuous (experienced hikers only). This is not a workout hike; there will be plenty of time for play.

What to bring: water shoes, change of clothing, lunch and snacks, plenty of fluids and/or water filter, money for pizza at Miguel's after the hike. You may want to pack a towel and an item of warm clothing in case you get chilled in the water.

Return: probably late (8-9 pm). If you need to be back by a certain time, best not to sign up for this one.

Be prepared to get wet!
