Total hike will be about 4.25 miles, the trails are relatively flat (total elevation gain is 187 feet), but we'll need to climb down a few rocks in one place and there is another spot on the way back where we'll do a stream crossing on large rocks (you may want to have your walking stick w/you).
If we are lucky we might see some beavers, turtles, snakes, fish, great blue herons, woodpeckers and more. Won't take much luck to encounter poison ivy so you may want to wear long pants or high socks.
What else to bring? Water bottle, closed toe shoes, binoculars if you have 'em, camera. Wear your bathing suit if you want to cool off in the river when we are done! Don't forget to apply the sunscreen and bug spray before we head out.
All participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver.
