Meet at 5:30 PM at Sky Country Trailhead.

This will be a custom route to Coal Creek Falls. This late in the season the falls are likely dry though the hike should still make for a very nice evening activity.

The park closes at dusk though seeing as dusk will be at 7:45 PM for the hike we should be able to finish the hike with a little time to spare.

Prior to signing up for this hike, please take into account the following:

  • Adults only (≥18 yrs old)
  • Bring illumination. Even though we'll get out before dusk, it's likely that it may be dark in the forest.
