Hike Description:VP hikers,
Sorry for the very late notice. With Saturday being the better day this weekend, we are going tomorrow. None of us have snowshoed this trail before, so we will hope the trail is broken. View the PDF of this snowshoe. Even I'm going this week as I'm back to normal!
DOGS: This snowshoe is on the border of the watershed. I would think dogs would be ok, you decide. You will need to drive you and your hairy friend to the trailhead.
WEATHER ISSUES: If we need to cancel the hike because of bad weather, I will send out an email by 9:30 am Saturday morning. So check your email before you leave.
ELEVATION GAIN: Unsure, but looks like the trail stays on the ridgeline, heading up and down to Birch Springs.
ROUND TRIP MILES: About 5 miles\
LUNCH WITH A VIEW: Don't forget to bring a lunch and water.
MEETING and LEAVING AT 10:00 A.M. (come 15 minutes early to socialize) We will be meeting at the old K-Mart on Parleys Way and Foothill Blvd, (about 2100 South). Meet us on the southeast side of the parking lot. From there we will drive up Parleys Canyon and connect to Emigration Canyon.
DRIVERS: If we have a large number of hikers, please consider being one of the drivers. From the parking lot, we will carpool. Please help your drive with the gas expense.
