One of the most challenging tasks on the California Trail was scaling the steep mountains in the high Sierra. At times, pioneers hauled their wagons up cliffs using lots of rope and animal power.
Join Ranger Greg Feathers and learn how to tie knots strong enough to haul a 2,000-pound wagon up a cliff. After instruction, junior rangers will use their own knots to haul a miniature wagon up a steep hill. This program will take place outdoors on rough terrain. Dress for cold weather.
