Mount Shasta Trail Association and avid hiker Barry Price is leading an impromptu hike to beautiful Fawn Creek Meadow. Here’s what Barry says:
This is an exploratory hike, and may be cut short by snow drifts and/or fallen trees left from last winter before we can even get to the starting point.
If we make it, though, expect the greatest display of flowers as we gradually work our way up Mt. Eddy from 5000 feet to 6200 feet, micro climate by micro climate, from wet to dry, from full sun to shaded. It’s pretty cool, although, it’s likely to be hot, too.
Anyway, let’s meet at the Fish Hatchery at 9 am on Saturday, July 9. (Central Mount Shasta exit and then go west away from Mount Shasta for a quarter-mile. Go straight at the stop sign.)
We’ll car pool to the forest road off of FR 26, about 11 miles, and up a sometimes crude road. Bring a lunch. We’ll be back by mid-afternoon.
