This hike will continue the theme from last year's "Evidence of the Past I" hike.

There will be some steep sections and cross country walking.

Bring your binoculars, standard hiking equipment includes sturdy lugged soled hiking footwear and trekking poles are recommended for stability. Bring plenty of water and trail snacks. Sunscreen, hat and rain gear are advisable. No pets allowed.

This is a free hike, limited to 8 participants and registration is required and available at www.fansofdeschutes.org. If the hike is full, your name will be added to the waiting list. We will contact you if space develops.
