Arcadia to Jennings Creek

About 10 miles; Strenuous; 26 miles from the parking area; $2 Car pool fee.

This hike starts behind the church in “downtown Arcadia” climbs moderately and steadily for about 3 miles. After intersecting the Glenwood Horse Trail, we come to the AT where we head south. We continue our climb passing the Cove Mt Shelter and ending our ascent at the Little Cove Mt trail. The descent down to Jennings Creek will pass over a footbridge to the end. We pass some nice views NW toward Purgatory Mt and Buchanan, the full (after Tuesday and Wednesday rains) Jennings Creek and a side trail to a great waterfall near the end. There is a fairly short (10 minute) car shuttle. Weather on Thursday should be mostly sunny with highs in the 50’s. Total elevation gain about 1600 feet over 5 miles….you won’t even notice you’re going uphill!
