This section of Sullivan Creek includes Elseys Pool, waterfalls, and some remarkable sculpted rocks formations.

The garbage will be packed 400′ up the hill to the railroad tracks by Columbia College students and other volunteers. Employees of Sierra Railroad will shuttle the junk 1/4 mile on the rails to where it can be loaded and hauled away. Come and have fun taking care of your public land!
