Antenna Trail Hike
The annual May Days Antenna Trail hike is a must for the outdoor enthusiast: a couple of hours of gorgeous Beaver Valley / Columbia Valley scenery. It’s a moderate hike with some steep sections, but suitable for the family. Take your time to enjoy the views and sign in at the Flag Viewpoint to tell the world you have reached the top! Meet at the trail head in Montrose at 12th Avenue and 4th Street, for an 9:00 am Saturday kick off, or hike on your own time. Don’t forget your camera!
