Ready for some fall colors and photo ops? We cannot predict nature but hopefully the timing is right. Join us for this iconic fall hike up and down this canyon. The view is always different on the way down. We will take our time to enjoy the fall foliage and capture the beauty. This will not be a looking at your feet hike but up and around to compose your best shots. Free tips will be given if desired.

Please note that this is still a challenging hike, ascending ~2000 ft in 3.5 miles. We might take the spur trail to See Canyon Spring on the return if the group desires.

Non photographers wishing to hike at a slower pace are welcome!

Bring plenty of water, camera, spare battery, sunscreen, snack/lunch and $ for carpool.

Cost to nonmembers is $5. Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the event.
