Iron & Teanaway Peaks


Day Hike - Iron Peak

This is a naturalist hike to enjoy the spring time beauty in the Teanaway. We will have frequent stops to identify the profuse wildflowers (including the alpine spring beauty), birds and other wildlife. Individuals from the Intro to Natural World course (and graduates) and others with naturalist interests are welcome.

Plan to meet at the Iron Peak trailhead at 9:30am. 

Since there is no restroom at the TH, plan to stop at Beverly creek C.G. or another site along the North fork of the Teanaway road before arriving at the trailhead.

No parking pass is required.

Since this is a naturalist trip, you may wish to bring binoculars or a loupe (for closer flower identification).  Poles can be useful on the trail.  Bring pleanty of water for possible sunny weather (we are on a ridgeline with the creeks far below) and have clothing layers and raingear. 

An email update will be sent a few days before the trip.
