This month we will work from the Little Applegate Trailhead toward Tunnel Ridge TH. With the ridiculously warm weather we have been having we may see some early wildflowers. This will be an out and back hike totaling about four to five miles – depending upon how far we get Great views and a lovely hike.

Where: Meet at Buncom (corner of Sterling Creek Rd and Little Applegate Rd at 8:30 AM. We will carpool/caravan to the Little Applegate Trailhead.
