The Really Tough HikeReg Pullen will lead us on an exploration of this little known area of high rocky ridgeline habitat with views that reach from the Pacific Ocean to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness.  This 2.3 mile section of the old Asa Carey trail (circa.1870) climbs 1300 feet to a rocky outcropping at 3029 feet.  4.6 mile round trip. 

The full hike up to Rocky Peak has some very steep grades and is rated most difficult.

The Less Difficult HikeYou will have the option to cover the first moderate to difficult portion of the Rocky Peak trail for some nice views and some interesting flora.    We will stop at an overlook for lunch.  You can rest or do a little exploring in some of the nearby meadows and wooded areas and then we follow our new and "Kinder" path that the local deer were taking back up to the road before returning to the trailhead for a total of 3 miles.
