Hike begins at Kings Mountain trailhead. Instead of going up to Kings Mountain though, we will make a left at the Wilson River junction. Continue on Wilson River Trail heading mostly up until we reach junction with Kings Junior Trail. Then head mostly down until we cross suspension bridge over the North Fork of Wilson River. There is a picnic table on the other side where we will have lunch before returning the way we came.
As we won't get up as high as Kings Mountain, there should be little or no snow. Should bring traction devices though as trail could get icy. Should also be prepared for cold and possibly wet conditions.
Hike is about 11.5 miles with 2,700 feet elevation gain. We will leave from Target off SW 185th at 8AM. 70 Miles round trip driving distance.
