Plan to huddle-up at the CHS Orientation at Cedar River Watershed Education Center and from there you will get further instructions and directions to trailhead etc.

This is a split hike to TWIN FALLS and to the MOUNT WASHINGTON OWL LOOKOUT spot (both trailheads are about a 1/4 mile from each other off of the John Wayne trail).  We will hike at mostly CHS 2 pace but also include a CHS 1 pace for a bit so you can experience both.
