Details

The trip will be a one-way hike begining at the Fall River visitors center summiting MacGregor Mountain and ending Lumpy Ridge parking lot. It will involve a car shuttle.



We'll start at the visitor's center going off trail up a steep incline to MacGregor Mountain. This will be a strenuous steep climb crossing many downed trees. After passing to the east of 9700 ft we will continue in N by NE direction towards the summit and approach from the west side. Near the summit there is a opportunity to do a short Class 3 scramble. At that point we will discuss as a group whether to do the scramble, or go around it to the summit. 



After summiting, we will head down the west ridge of the mountain then cut to the south towards Black Canyon trail. We'll follow the trail for a bit then go off trail to see Mcgregor Falls. After taking the mandatory photo at the falls we rejoin the trail and make our way to Lumpy Ridge trailhead.
