Day Hike - Granite Lakes via Granite Creek

Re-scheduling this conditioning hike after having had to recently cancel due to hazardous air quality. Late summer/early fall 8.8-mile conditioning hike at about a 2-2.5 mph pace. Please only sign up for this hike if you have done a reasonable amount of hiking over the summer and are comfortable with the mileage and pace. If wildfire smoke is still causing air quality to be hazardous the day before the hike, I will cancel and reschedule.
