We will be meeting at 6:00 am at the Martin Way Park & Ride, that way we should be at the trail head no later than 8:30/9:00am.

Weather will be in the 80's, so sunblock is a must. Also extra water or water filter system. There will be water on the route to filter from. The pace will be around 1 1/2 to 2 mph going up and 2 to 2 1/2 going down. If this pace is too slow for you, please do not sign up. It is a 13 mile rd trip so plan on getting back to the trailhead around 4:00pm. If the party wants we can stop on the way home to get something to eat.
