Let’s celebrate new year on the trail with potluck picnic!
Easy-Intermediate, 4 miles, 800′ gain
We’ll be passing through a beautiful canyon with huge red, pale purple, and tan sandstone walls.
The hike begins with a steady climb on a fire road for 0.75 mile. We turn right at the junction and begin heading mostly down another fire road for about 1.25 miles.
There will be a picnic area on the right, where we’ll enjoy a potluck picnic. If your item requires utensils/plates/toothpicks, etc., please bring them.
The picnic area is wooded and shaded. Consider bringing insect repellent.
We’ll return the way we came after about 1.5 hours.

Navigation: Host memory, and others that have done this route.
Hike type: Social.
We won’t be hiking at a fast pace because this is a social hike, not a conditioning hike. There is nothing wrong with stopping, even if it means every 50 steps.
