Meet at the Red Town Trailhead at 8:30.  No parking pass is required.

Starting at Red Town and going clockwise, the route will pass a Mine Shaft, Wilderness Peak, Doughty Falls, Far Country Falls, Coal Creek Falls, and then head back to Red Town.  This hike is mainly in the woods, passing several small waterfalls.  Note:  I have not hiked this route, but will have a detailed map, and we can all help navigate the numerous junctions.

An email will be sent two days before the hike with more details.
