The group will meet at 9:00 at the trailhead.  The hike should take about 2 hours to reach the lunch spot, spend 30 or 40 minutes on the river bank and return to the trailhead about 1:30.  A Northwest Forest Pass or National Park Pass is required to park. The parking lot at the trailhead is small so we may need to park on the side of a dusty forest service road. A restroom is available at the trailhead.

Directions and other trip details will be sent to participants after registration closes on June 27th.
