Leisurely pace, and we'll stay together as a group - if you're the type who likes to run ahead, don't come. Please note the road is in bad shape according to recent trip reports - if you have a high clearance vehicle and can drive let me know (see for example http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/trip-reports/trip_report.2011-05-09.2022405666), and the USFS report bears this out: "The Middle Fork Road has suffered some flood damage, but the Middle Fork trailhead, Taylor River trailhead and Dingford Creek trailhead are accessible to high clearance vehicles. The Middle Fork Trail Head parking lot may be closed, but the trail is still open. The road is permanently closed at Dingford Creek."
