URGENT INFO!!

There is a big race near our 6200 South meeting place which could make it difficult for you to meet us there on time. If it's a challenge skip this meeting place and drive 3 miles up Millcreek Canyon, to CHURCH FORK PICNIC AREA (see map). Meet us on the bridge, ready to hike. The bridge is barely off the canyon road. Get there early to use a bathroom if you like. It's just barely up the paved picnic road from the bridge.

Mike Lucero, my long-time assistant, will be watching for you on the bridge AFTER HE HAS BEEN TO OUR 6200 South to see if anyone else is waiting there.

At that time we'll divide the group into Easier AND more Moderate options. If you are not sure which group to go in, opt for the easier since it is still a work out and far from a walk in the park! We want everyone to have a great time, especially if you are new to our group!

FYI: There are 5 trails nearby

Let Mike Lucero know if you are new to our group so he can help you find other similar hiking friends.

TIMELINE:

8:00 AM - Start gathering, greet everyone, arrange carpools, announcements, final instructions, etc.
8:30 AM - Leave for the trail
OR
8:40 AM - Arrive at the trailhead. Look for us on the BRIDGE at Church Fork Picnic area just off the canyon road. Wait for us if we take a little longer but we should be there close to 8:40 ish.

Approx. 8:45 AM - Start hiking.
11 AM - Off the trail (Some may hike longer or even shorter than this.  You may always turn around at any time you like.)

OUR GOAL is to help you...

  • become more physically, emotionally and mentally strong
  • get better acquainted with many trails in the Wasatch Mountains
