Winter Hike Series: Mule Mountain, Applegate Valley
Fawn Lillies and Shooting Stars!
This is the perfect place to find the first wildflowers of the season and get views of the snow covered Red Buttes Wilderness along the Siskiyou Crest. This is a moderate hike with the option to take a side trip off trail to the summit of Mule Mt. We will hike through most of the major habitat types of the Applegate in just a few miles of trail. We will learn the names of the flowers and birds we encounter and discuss the major ecological threats facing the area.
We will meet at 10:00 am at Evo's Cafe across from the Public Library in Ashland and at 10:30 at the Country Store in Ruch and carpool from there to the trailhead. We will still hike in a light rain, but will cancel for severe weather. Please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the KS Wild office at 488-5789.
Bring: food, water, warm clothes, rain gear if needed and binoculars if you have them!
