day hike - millcreek to mt aire via birch hollow - bushwacking involved - July 1, 2017
7:35 departure from Skyline HS. We will start at Pipeline, ascend to the saddle at Birch Hollow and follow the ridge line to Mt. Aire. After the descent to Elbow Fork, we will head back to the cars via Pipeline trail. Note: This hike may be somewhat exploratory to get from Birch Hollow saddle to the Mt Aire saddle. Note 2: I pre-hiked this route on Sunday, 6/25. There is a lot of bushwacking to get from the Burch Hollow saddle to Mt Aire saddle. Dogs not recommended. I will offer two hikes. 1) To the Burch Hollow saddle out and back to the trailhead. We will appoint someone to be the hike organizer for the return trip. 2) Outlined as planned - Burch Hollow to Mt. Aire. Plan on 6 hours and a lot of bushwacking. It was fun; caution - wear appropriate clothing.
