Join us on October 14th at 9 AM as we hike from the town of Index to the top of Heybrook Ridge. This is a new trail (not the Fire Lookout on the highway). We’ll meet at the trail head on Index-Galena Road just across the river from Index. The hike is about 1.75 miles each way and ends at an overlook and a lovely view of Bridal Veil Falls across the valley. We can enjoy the Fall leaves as well as some good fellowship and the view.  To get there, drive Highway 2 to mile 35.5 and turn left at the Mt Index Brewery. Drive about 1 mile, passing under the railroad. The trailhead is on the right – watch for the FBC sign. Hope to see you there!  Carol Hurley
