Plan is for a loop trip starting on the Bear Ridge trail. We will pass the Fantastic Erratic, stop for a brief view of the Clay Pit, then continue past the Mine shaft. Length of the return loop will depend on weather conditions and group energy. This is the opening event of the 2011 After Hours series, taking advantage of Daylight Savings Time. NOTE THAT WE WILL BE MEETING AT THE TIBBETS PARK AND RIDE, NOT AT EXIT 20. I'LL SEND DIRECTIONS WITH THE PREPARATORY EMAIL NEXT WEEK. Please bring good light as we likely will be returning to trailhead in the dark. Leave promptly at 4:30pm.
