We will meet at the trailhead that is the North High Point Trailhead (there is no sign to indicate that this is a High Point Trailhead)  that is on the North side of  I-90 at 8:30 am.  For this trailhead you take Exit 20 but turn left at the stop sign and pass under I-90 and park in the gravel parking area on the west side of the road.  This trailhead is immediately next to the freeway.  There are no perma-potties or porta-potties available at this trailhead and also no water.  No passes are needed for this trailhead.  I'll send a map out to those that sign up a day or so prior to the hike.  We will want to be geared up and ready to go shortly after 8:30.

This is a mild hike for what looks to be a very nice and warm day.  We will take the East Fork Trailhead and go up to Central Park for lunch or snack.  Central Park does have restrooms.  I will be sending out a map of Grand Ridge Park shortly before our hike.  As always be sure to have your Ten Essentials and please wear hiking boots.  We will have stops as needed for hydration and snacks.  More info to follow on the Welcome to the Hike e-mail.
