Join us on Hunt Lake for a taste of the trail. This hike will be a good opportunity to explore the trail without committing to the entire distance. The first part of the trail is the hardest so be ready for a physical and mental workout! There will be opportunities to stop for photography and to enjoy the views. Depending on water levels and weather, there may be an opportunity to swim at our turn around point.
We will hike this trail rain or shine, unless deemed unsafe.
