August Bark About: Volcanoes and Glaciers of the PNW

Sunday, August 8, 2021 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join us in-person on a hike through sections of the PCT to discuss Oregon's geology and the volcanics of Mt. Hood. This Bark About is an out-and-back hike starting at Little Crater Lake and hiking 3 miles to Timothy Lake (for a total of 6 miles) where we will reach a large outcrop of volcanic rock. Most of the hike will occur on a flat, well-maintained trail and another 1/2 mile will occur off-trail on uneven ground. A lifelong student of ethnobotany and natural history, this month's hike leader, Kyle Robbins, brings a unique knowledge of the PNW along with for the ride. Kyle's studies include forest ecology and geology.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats it faces, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts.
