Day Hike - Shady Lane & Staircase Rapids

Let's get out and enjoy a lot of green, some early signs of spring, and lots of flowing water. This hike will NOT include the Shady Lane leg but will start at the Ranger Station, travel up river past the rapids, over the bridge, and up-river another couple of miles.
