Date: August 27, 2019

Time: 8:00 am

Location: Coffin Mountain

Hearty Soles Hiking Group

Tuesday, August 27. A 360-degree  panorama of the Cascades makes the hike up Coffin Mountain trail worth the two-hour ride to the trailhead. The trail traverses through bear grass and wildflowers and varied terrain, gaining 1,020 feet over a mile and a half. So it's a steady uphill and steep in places, but the reward is the view from the fire lookout on the mountaintop. Sturdy boots and hiking poles are a must. Meet at 8 a.m. at HTCC and we'll have lunch afterward in Sisters.  Bring a snack, water (none at trailhead), bug repellent, sunscreen and soap for Care and Share.  RSVP to your leaders, Nancy Todd or Liz LeCuyer.
