This is almost exactly the same White River hike that we do in summer and winter, but on this visit we won't be crossing the river—the ice is mostly all melted, and the water would be way too cold to walk through.
The hike starts at a small scenic area that is the starting point of this hike. We'll follow the park trails down to the riverside, walking down through a canyon. (If it's not possible to start at the park we'll do the hike backwards, which will make it a bit more difficult.)
We'll be following the river as it winds through a deep and wide canyon with numerous forks and steep rocky cliffs, making this an extremely picturesque hike that is easy to finish.
You'll see the running river and the last of the ice, plus impressive tall and steep cliffs made from massive slabs of rock and boulders, and hopefully the local family of herons that nest high up in the cliffs.
Because of the COVID-19 situation we have some extra terms and conditions for participation.
