PARKING: Parking is free but may prove challenging due to the limited space. We may need to park on nearby neighborhood streets.

Intermediate 2 / Level 5
Level 2 – Intermediate is a step up from Level 1 – Intermediate and can be 6-10 miles in length. In addition to the length, hikers should be prepared for potentially difficult terrain, possibly with the need to use hands to keep balance. 

TRAIL WALK-THROUGH: 
This is a relatively simple hike as far as elevation goes. However, there are plenty of uneven surfaces and creek crossings. Staying dry is an option, but this hike will involve some minor rock hopping and/or balanced log crossings. Many, but not all, areas are shaded. We will pass the Gould Mesa Campground, honoring Will Gould, who homesteaded here in the 1890's. There is a lone outhouse at this location. Along the way we will pass other remnants of the past; foundations of old cabins and the remains of old bridges, some washed out and some not. The dam is about 300 feet past the Paul Little Picnic area.
