Please contact hike leader for meet time and location.

Let’s escape the heat in the Valley.  Join us for this popular hike to Horton Creek.  We will do the loop hike, hiking up the Derrick and Highline trails to Horton Spring and then returning to the trailhead on the Horton Creek Trail.  There should still be water at the spring.  We will have lunch by the spring, relax before heading back.  Spring and waterfalls along the way. Have your camera ready as we take in the beautiful scenery.  We will not rush down the hill unless it is raining or hailing! 

Bring sunscreen, plenty of water, lunch, snacks, camera and $ for carpool.  No dogs or children please.
