Event information

TRAVELING GUIDED WALK with 30-minute start window. We haven't traveled this trail before, and the NPS has created a great educational hike! Most trails are not paved and could be muddy depending on the weather (though we walked it after rain and found no really bad sections). Bring water, sturdy shoes, sticks if needed. Hats, sunscreen, and insect repellent useful. NOTE: 11K TGW has restroom ONLY at the start. The YRE at this location has a 5K trail.
