Geology of the White Cloud Mountains

Rock lovers and nature nerds are encouraged to join ICL staff member Josh Johnson for a beautiful day hike to the Antz Basin Divide and Fourth of July Lake in the White Clouds Mountains. In addition to the fantastic views, participants will learn about the uniquely awesome geology of the White Clouds and how it connects to ICL’s mining and public lands work. Josh has a master’s degree in geology and several years experience as an interpretive guide.

The hike is approximately 7 miles round trip with 1,200 feet of elevation gain. Please consider the difficulty of the hike before registering. Bring sturdy boots, rain gear and warm layers.

We will meet at the ICL office at 8 am to carpool to the trailhead. If you plan to attend this hike, be sure to bring the following:

  • Plenty of water (2-3 liters recommended)
  • Snacks!
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat and sunglasses
  • Warm layers (down jacket, fleece, etc.)
  • Rain jacket/outer shell
  • Sturdy hiking boots
  • Trekking poles (optional)

This hike is limited to 10 participants — be sure to reserve your spot.
