Middle Fork Trailhead 8am.  Carpools will be coordinated via email

I've secured a campsite at the hot spring for 5 people for this Saturday night.  So lets hike in, soak in the natural spring and then hike back on Sunday.  

  • It's going to be cold at night, be sure to bring appropriate clothing, and a bathing suit! ;-). 
  • This a shoulder season backpack, even though the weather looks good, you should be prepared for all conditions.  This should not be your first backpack.
  • The plan will be to park our cars at the middle fork camp ground and walk the 10 miles in.   It's a long gradual ascent with I believe one some what dicey stream crossing.
