8 AM - Trailhead

A hike in the woods close to home.  We will start at the Margaret’s Way trail head and continue to Central Peak and West Peak and return on the Chybinski Loop trail. We will hike at a moderate pace of about 2 to 2.5 mph. Please note this doubles the miles of the standard trip to Debbie's View. We are going 10 miles not 5.5. We should get a good workout and have fun in the outdoors.

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. Everyone should carry traction devices (Yaktraks, MICROspikes,etc.) in case of ice.
