Saturday, May 6, 2017
9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join Family Outings and H/B to hike the Mount Morgan (2220')/Mount Percival (2212') loop (~ 5.3 miles; 1575 feet of elevation gain). This hike is appropriate for kids and adults ages 8+ with some hiking experience on open rocky ledges. We will hike open ledges, a series of fun wooden ladders and tight squeezes through rock caves, cliff faces and rock scrambles, not for the faint of heart, as well as an alternate path or two should caves and ladders not be your thing. The climb is moderate to steep.
