** LEADERS PERMISSION REQUIRED ONLY SO I CAN BE SURE TO TALK TO ALL WHO SIGN UP – PLEASE READ ALL NOTES BELOW **

This trip is tentative depending on fires and trail condition.  The route we will take will also vary somewhat depending on what we all feel like doing, there are lots of trails we can explore in this area.  We may opt to do a thru-hike with a shuttle.

 We will hike at a slow pace, taking frequent breaks - quick photography is encouraged.  To keep the group together we may opt to have the slowest hiker lead. We will stop for an extended lunch (~20 minutes) or when we get to camp. We will break camp and head back to our cars Sunday morning starting around 9am.
 

** NOTE ** This trip is *NOT* recommended if:

   ** you are in a hurry to get to camp and/or can't handle hiking at a slowwww pace
    **  you prefer to read in your tent the rest of the day once you get in camp (this trip is meant for those that like to be social and want to explore)
    **  you are awake earlier than 5am and get really bored waiting for other folks to wake up
   **  you don't like, or have problems with, hiking at a slower pace
