Explore Queen Mountain West Fall 2019

Saturday, December 14, 2019, 3:30 PM

Venture forth to the remote and seldom visited, west side of Queen Mountain where water has carved the underlying quartz monzonite rock in to a series of sculpted, polished potholes and other unique natural features similar to its down stream counterpart, Rattlesnake Canyon. Along the way, participants will get a unique view of the expansive and complex Wonderland of Rocks that lies below. The hike leader will also point out important geologic landmarks that may prove useful on future hikes that participants may choose to do on their own. Of special note: This hike is entirely off-trail and involves short sections of easy to moderate rock scrambling.   8.5 miles RT Please download the course outline Explore Queen Mountain West Fall 2019.
