Be ready at the Ira Spring Trailhead to start walking by 7:30am. Plan to arrive early enough to get your boots on and do your other prep beforehand. We're starting early in part to beat the crowd to the parking lot on a sunny holiday weekend.

This trip is appropriate for current students that have successfully completed both the snow and rock field trips. We should encounter a fair amount of both rock and snow. It is fairly strenuous so please be in shape.
