*Hikers wanted now to help with trailblazing! Lynn Melton is marking the Switchback-to-Calico Peak trail extension, and is seeking hiking companions, starting now, through the Fall. The first step is to follow the approved 6-7 mile GPX track and mark the trail route with trail signs. The schedule is very flexible. There is a 400 foot rise at the start, followed by a long 1500 foot descent. Please contact Lynn today at lynnmelt@gmail.com and get out there!
