Park and Ride

This will be a moderately paced hike following the Boulder River trail. I plan to do this hike rain or shine (in fact the waterfalls look pretty nice in the rain - but it will be good too if its dry). So, please be prepared for all kinds of weather.

We will plan on stopping for a snack break at the campsite at the end of the trail. 

Also, there are reports of some trees down along the trail, so we will have to climb and/or maneuver around those.

The road to the trailhead is rough but passable, so if you plan on driving, please be prepared.
