Trailhead, 8 AM.

A hike in the woods close to home. This trip is intended as a winter conditioning hike and so we will continue to Central Peak and West Peak and return on the Chybinski Loop trail adding at least 5 miles to the 5.5 mi. the club lists for the Margaret's Way trail alone. We will hike at a moderate pace of about 2 mph.

This trail is close to town, but still is a wilderness experience. Please be prepared with  appropriate gear and dressed for a winter outing in the woods (snow is possible). We will have more fun if everyone is comfortable.
