What to expect: We will document any invasive species using EDDMapsWest app or paper survey forms, pull weeds when necessary and appropriate. Depending on your data plan, it may be helpful to download the app ahead of time if you plan on using this tool.
This hike will lead us down a wide gravel path into the Pack Forest. We aim to hike the 4.5 mile round trip to Little Mashel Falls, however if we must stop and document a lot of weeds, folks may have to choose to finish the hike after our allotted time together.
