Jesse Gobeli will lead "Bird Flew" with an estimated duration of 3 hours.

Meet at 6:30 pm in the Bird Ridge mega parking lot (not the small lot). We will start on the Bird Ridge Trail  but will quickly diverge to hidden paths leading to Bird Creek Falls. From there our route will proceed to and up a steep, scrambly, and possibly icy climb to Bird Ridge where we will descend via the main trail. This is a monumental classic.
