9:00 AM at The Monroe Smokestack
Participants will enjoy a non-technical hike up above the Index Town Wall in Forks of the Sky State Park, near Wild Sky Wilderness. During our hike, we will learn about a range of recreation management issues in the area - including climbing access, wilderness access, and particularly the effects of unmanaged motorized recreation. We will meet at Monroe smokestack at 9:00 AM, carpool from there to the Stimson Bullitt Climbing Reserve at Index Town Wall, and plan to be hiking from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (5 hours), then back to Monroe around 4:00 PM.
