Event Notes:

A moderate 8 mile/1500ft loop hike in EBRPD Dry Creek Pioneer/Garin Regional Parks. The route will leave the May rd staging area along May, High Ridge Loop, FD143, and High Ridge Loop Trails for a quick exploration of the Native American mortar site at Gossip Rock. We will then follow the ridge into Garin for a snack break at the Red Barn. The return route will be in the shade past Jordan Pond on the Dry Creek, Meyers Ranch, Pioneer, High Ridge Loop, and May Trails. An optional 6.5 mile/1100ft route can return via Meyers Ranch Trail without the extra climb up the Pioneer trail.

Leader: Joel Schantz


Trail Notes:

Various loop trail hikes can be made into Dry Creek/Pioneer and Garin Regional Parks from the May Road Staging Area. Drinking water and porta-potty are available at the staging area.
