We'll meet at the Orofino City Park at 6:30 AM, and should be on the trail by 8:30 AM.
Split Creek Trail, #133: 11 miles, approx. 5 hours; Closed to all mechanized travel including bicycles. Begins at Hwy 12 at Split Creek Pack Bridge (MP 111.4) and ends at junction with Eagle Mountain Trail #3 at Louse Lake;Access to Split Creek Ridge, Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, Louse Lake and Bridge; A long hot climb on a sunny day, so an early morning start is recommended. A spring 3 miles up is only water for 8 miles.
We will only be hiking the first 2-3 miles up to the point, and the likely rain will keep us cool. Layer up with a rain poncho or outer shell, and pack lunch and plenty of water! We don't expect snow in the trail, but conditions may be wet, so bring good trail shoes at least.
