5-6 MILE HIKE alongside a stream... MOSTLY IN THE SHADE!!!
Lots of rock-hopping... (last time a few of us got wet shoes... but if you're careful you can avoid the water...)
parking's gonna be TOUGH... so expect to park on one of the upper parking lots and walk down 1/2 to 3/4 mile to the trailhead...
allow an extra 20-25 minutes to find parking and walk down
***IF YOU LEAVE THE WEST SIDE BY 11:30am...
you'll have time to park and walk down to the trailhead
GOOGLE MAP TO SWITZER FALLS
bring a snack and water... we'll stop a few times for snack-break and to take pics etc...
DOGS OK ON LEASH!!!
MEET AT LOWER SWITZER FALLS PARKING LOT
BETWEEN THE RESTROOM AND THE BRIDGE
*****YOU NEED AN ADVENTURE PASS ( one per vehicle / $5 per DAY pass ) and can be purchased at the RANGER station on the right; 1/2 mile before the turn to the parking lot. YEAR passes are $30 a year
