"I bet they're sayin’, "why don't he write?" "Missed The Turn" is back and taking all comers for a lake and jeep trail hike starting at Willow Springs Lake. We will start at the lake, cross the spillway and dam before we head left for the first leg of a flat hike. This hike is mainly on Jeep and forest roads, with a bit of muss from logging and around 2 miles within earshot of Hwy 260. We will then turn back along the lake and perhaps take a break to enjoy the waters and Osprey. Or, we could explore a bit of Willow Springs Canyon (off trail) and its eastern rim, but the leader has not reconned this option.

Both hikes will be in early fall conditions at 7,000 feet, so check the weather for appropriate clothing. Bring a minimum of 3 liters of water and snacks.

Possible lunch afterwards in Payson.

Cost to non-members is $5.
