Meet at 8 AM at Sky Country Trailhead.

This will be a custom lollipop loop that will take us to Coal Creek Falls, Far Country Falls, and Far Country Lookout. Now that we're getting back into the rainy season the falls are starting to be less likely to be dry. Either way, this will make for a pleasant morning hike.
