Welcome to our second Hump Day hike of the season!

This time we will go further afield and explore an Owyhee Canyon at Hardtrigger Creek. We will also visit a small waterfall.

The hike will be easy to moderate and will be between one and two miles long, depending on available time.

We will meet at the IOA Hall and caravan to our location. The drive will take about an hour and involves dirt roads. A high clearance vehicle is preferred.

Our campsite will be on isolated private land within walking distance of downtown and its amenities.
