We will be meeting at the Martin Way P & R at 6:00 and leaving by 6:15. We want to be on the trail no later than 8:30.

This is one of my top 10 hikes. Beauty, edgy with a splash of excitment. It is later in the year which means it gets dark sooner. Make sure you have a working headlamp and extra batteries. Do not wait until you need them to make sure they work. Also you 10 essential and 2 to 3 liters of water. We will be crossing a stream, but not sure if it will be dry or not.  Don't forget your camera, fall colors will be in full view.

This also an easy pace hike both up and down.
