Towell Falls, DH-2

George Meriwether, george@ghmworld.net

This is a moderate hike to the falls in the Rock Creek Recreational Area near Sprague. The area is largely an open grazing land, scabbed with basalt outcroppings, mesas, and a river running through it. The terrain was scoured by Ice Age floods leaving scattered lakes and waterfalls. The hike is about 7.0 miles RT with about 700 feet total elevation gain. We will start at the Escure Ranch trailhead and head south on an old ranch road to the falls. We will have lunch by the falls and head back to the cars the same way. We will hike at a moderate pace. Bring along the Ten Essentials, lunch, and 2-3 liters of water. Be prepared for sun, rain, and cold winds. The trip is limited to 12 hikers and all participants will be vetted by the leader.
