evening hike and 50 year anniversary of evening hiking: greens basin

Fifty years ago today, Dale Green organized the first WMC evening hike. A hike to Green's Basin is the perfect way to celebrate! This hike goes to a beautiful meadow in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The hike starts at the Days Fork trailhead in the Spruces campground. After traveling up the steep Days Fork "chute", we will proceed on the unsigned Greens Basin trail that gently climbs through a beautiful forest. The short distance and moderate elevation gain should allow us to get up and back before dark. Plan to leave the meeting place at 6:00 pm. Please remember 10 Es. We will continue the Golden Anniversary of WMC Evening Hikes celebration with cake, a toast, and group photo at Spruces Campground.
