We will be accessing the trail from the Stone Door ranger station in Beersheba Springs, and will hike the 0.9 mile Stone Door trail, containing some of the best overlooks in the park. At the end, we descend down through the steep and stunning Stone Door (be thankful we’re not hiking the other way!). At the bottom of the gorge we will turn right and take the 4.0 mile Big Creek Gulf trail, with its rocky and challenging terrain. There is an optional, one mile spur trail along this section, to Ranger Falls. We will eat lunch along this section of trail. At the end, the Big Creek Gulf trail climbs gradually to the rim, where we will meet the Big Creek Rim trail. The next 4.0 miles are on flat, easy terrain on the gorge rim, with some nice overlooks and several creek crossings to keep things interesting. We finish the “balloon” by backtracking the 0.9 Stone Door trail.
This event is free for both Team Green Members and Non-Members.
Spots are still available. Please email Christy O to join the hike!
