Event Notes:

We won't do the waterfall part because there isn't any water yet. We will hike 5 to 6 miles. We will take Donner Canyon to Back Creek for the return. After the hike there is a Christmas pot luck at Peggi's place (nearby). We will caravan there. Peggi will hand out directions at the staging area. Bring finger food to share (cookies, fruit, cheese, etc.). Let's get into the Christmas spirit.

Trail Notes:

This is a moderate hike, approximately 6-mile long roundtrip. Wildflowers, rock formations, and sweeping views make this a spectacular hike.
