Mid-morning at trailhead, more details will be sent to participants. Vaccinated hikers only. If you've not hiked with me before, please email your covid-19 vax card. Click my name for email address info.

The pace will be steady but not fast; however, you must be in good condition. Might be some snow on upper slope, bring micro-spikes. The trail becomes rocky, steep, and slick in places, so I strongly encourage poles. Boots with good traction are needed. No parking pass required.
