day hike mod+ argenta - carbonate trails on kessler

Thanks to Wayne Crawford and other Cardiff Fork private property owners for giving us special permission to hike this rarely hiked historic faint trail to Kessler Peak Ridge. Come join Brett Smith (801-580-2066 or brettsmith459@yahoo.com) and Knick Knickerbocker (801-891-2669 or knick.sold@comcast.net) on this STEEP trail adventure with spots of scrambling on loose scree. You may wish to wear long pants as there is a small chance of some minor bush whacking. We will show you some of the historic old cabin and mine sights. Brett and Knick plan to hike up the Argenta trail (northwest approach) to Carbonate Saddle of Kessler. We may hike to Kessler Peak or a great overlook of Mineral Fork. Then we plan to hike down eastside of Kessler using the faint Carbonate Mine Trail. Shuttle will be required. Meet Brett and Knick at 6200 South and Wasatch Park-n-Ride by 8:15 am. Come prepared for a great hike and adventure.
