Meet at trailhead ready to hike at 8:30 am. If you wish to carpool, I can meet on I-90 west of TH. Contact me or email all participants to see about carpooling. Mountaineer Covid rules do apply so carpooling probably makes sense only for those vaccinated.

Because this is a relatively strenuous hike and posted last minute, Mountaineer members only please.

If you wish to bring a dog who will be leashed the whole trip and you'll clean up the poop, then let me know when you sign up and I'll let others know a dog will be on this trip.

If you wish for a canine-free trip, let me know that when you sign up, and I will change posting so no dogs invited.
