Opal Creek Hike

Saturday, August 10 at 8:30am to 6:00pm

Outdoor Program Rental Barn 1225 E. 18th Ave

Join us for this easy riverside walk through a spectacular, towering forest of 500-year-old trees! On the way, we'll see an abandoned mine, walk through the historic former logging town Jawbone Flats (population 11!), and get up close to the crystalline Opal Pool! Bring swimsuits if you might want to take a dip. If the water isn't too cold, we can stop for a bit at one of the many wonderful swimming holes along the trail!
