Update: Original Dates Cancelled. Moved up to 10/10 weekend!
Join in on a big weekend backpacking trip to the heart of the Galiuros.
Spend a minimum of one night on either side of the 10-mile hike in and out, or add a day and spend some time exploring the rich history of the area.
Update on the schedule that I'll be taking on this.
I'll be heading out from the valley early Friday morning and hiking to the garden Friday afternoon.
Saturday I'll be taking the 12 mile round-trip to the mine/cabin/shootout site as a leisurely day hike.
Sunday morning I'll hike out and drive home later in the day.
I know others may not be able to take Friday off and won't arrive until Saturday. That's absolutely fine and you are still welcome to attend.
Because Powers Garden is in the Galiuro Wilderness this event will be limited to 15 people to remain in compliance with wilderness group size guidelines.
The loop is made up by hiking the following trails, but an out-and-back option exists to avoid climbing over the 7000 foot east divide:
Power's Garden Loop
Powers Garden Trail
It's the end of October and elevations range from 5000 to 7000 feet. This will very likely result in some chilly nights.
