The Friends of the Umpqua Hiking Club is planning to hike Yellowjacket Loop from Hemlock Lake on Sept. 9.
Hikers will meet before 8 a.m. in the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot to head to the 5.6-mile loop.
Yellowjacket loop has a 910 foot altitude gain in the mountains above Glide with wildflower meadows and elk viewing opportunities.
There is an optional .8-mile detour to the site of the remains of the Flat Rock Lookout.
The hike may be changes due to wildfire and safety concern.
