Yolla Bolly Wilderness Field Trip

Yolla Bolly Wilderness Field Trip

Join the California Native Plant Society to the southern extent of the Klamath Mountains near Wildwood off Highway 36.  This will be a 7 ½ difficult hike with a 2000 foot elevation climb to the top of Black Rock Mountain at 7755 feet where we should see foxtail pine(Pinus balfouriana) and many unique plants endemic to the Klamath Mountains.  This will be a 90 mile drive, all paved except the last two miles and will take about two hours.  There is primitive camping in the area for those wanting to make a two day stay.  Bring plenty of water, lunch, hat, sunscreen and long pants as the last 300 foot climb is rocky. There is an abandoned dilapidated forest fire lookout at the top.  We will leave Redding at 7:30 am to caravan to the trailhead and will return as late as 6 pm. For more information about meeting location and to reserve a space contact David Ledger at 355-8542 or dledger@sbcglobal.net. Limited to 16 people.
