June 3 – Hike!

New! Coal Creek Trail toward New Castle – 6 miles (3 miles each way)




Red Town Trailhead to Coal Creek Falls and Far Country Falls. One of the few walks from 2018 that was cancelled due to weather. Right now it looks like Monday will be perfect weather for this hilly forest walk with a waterfall (or two).  It is a mix of dirt and gravel trails with a couple steep ups and downs.  Sections of the trail are fairly narrow but well groomed.

The Hike! ends at the Ford Slope Coal Mining Exhibit where we can learn about the mining history of this area.  . Depending on the group we will walk between 3.8 and 5 miles with an elevation gain of between 650 and 850 feet. Coffee at Lakemont Starbucks after the hike.
