Hey Hiking Pacers,
IMPORTANT LAST MINUTE INFORMATION – PLEASE READ
Due to recent weather and more importantly, road conditions near Cooper Canyon, we will need to cancel our hike to the Cooper Canyon. As of this morning, chains and snow tires are required on part of the 2 in order to get to Cooper Canyon and will most likely be in effect all weekend. We will, however, replace the hike to Cooper Canyon with a hike to Potato Mountain.
We had so much fun at our hike last weekend. Share the fun with your family and friends. We welcome them with open arms.
