There are still a few spots left in our summer hike series and educational outings. Check the listings below to sign up:

June 16 – Old Growth Ecology Hike
Join Brian Baxter and Pat McLeod at the Ross Creek Cedar Grove for an old growth ecology educational hike.

June 21 – 70+ Scotchman Peak
For those who are 70 years young or older. Come on this Strenuous rated hike up the area’s namesake.

June 30 – Spar Peak
This trail climbs steadily through various forest types as you progress toward the ‘thumb’ of Spar Peak to take in expansive vistas of the Scotchman Peaks interior valleys and peaks.

July 8 – South Fork of Ross Creek
After admiring the stature and hush of these mammoth trees at Ross Creek Cedars, we will head up and beyond to the South Fork of Ross Creek. This hike is currently full, but you can sign up for the waitlist.

July 13 – Star Peak
Join this day hike up the Big Eddy Trail #999 to Star Peak. The hike is a steady climb through forests sprinkled with huckleberry bushes, bear grass, and stunning views.

August 6 – Sawtooth Mountain
This bushwhack is complete with route-finding, thinking like an elk, tag alder, huckleberries, the occasional cliff, talus large and small, “where-the-heck-are-we” moments and a grand, all-day adventure worth every minute, ounce of sweat and drop of blood.

October 6 – Scotchman Peak
The namesake peak, slow and steady, like a mountain goat, just under 4 miles one way, just under 4,000 feet. This hike is currently full, but you can sign up for the waitlist.
