For our first hike of 2019, The Clearwater Trekkers will meet up at the Big Eddy Trailhead at 8:00 AM this Saturday the 12th. We’ll hike out to one of the campsites at the 3 or 5 mile marker, do lunch, then head back. How far we go will depend on trail conditions and how well we’re doing for the first hike of the year. LOL!
To get to the Big Eddy trailhead and boat launch, cross the bridge from Highway 12 into Orofino, then take your first left onto Riverside Ave (AKA Ahsahka Rd). Follow Riverside Ave past the Fish Hachery and across another bridge into Ahsahka. In a short distance, you’ll take a sharp right turn onto Viewpoint Rd, which will end at the Big Eddy boat launch parking lot. The trailhead is on the left side of the welcome center.
Be prepared for wet trail conditions. We’re expecting cloudy and 40 degree weather, so layer up. Bring a lunch and plenty of water, and don’t hesitate to reach out or comment if you have questions or suggestions. We’ll see you there!
