Fires and Our Forest Hike

This hike is approximately 2.1 miles roundtrip with about 225 feet of elevation gain.

We will trek along the west ridge of the lake above the bat cave and observe the fresh understory growth on the land marked by the 18-acre fire of 2016. Along the way, let’s take note of and compare the biota we see in the burned and surrounding areas. Meet at the water tower at the end of 29th Ave.

This hike is for humans only. Please leave your pets at home.

The Fires and Our Forest Hike is listed as Intermediate: suitable for those in fair hiking condition or novices who want a bit of a challenge. Generally 2-4 miles roundtrip with moderate elevation gain. May include some steep sections and some obstacles along the trail that require balance or maneuvering.
