We will begin at the trailhead right around 6 am. Arrive at the trailhead a few minutes before to be ready. Carpool as needed. 

This is a strenuous event if doing more than 2 rounds and involves careful consideration of water, food, and pack weight, please have enough for you to sustain energy for the amount of laps you hope to achieve, I am striving for 6. You can choose to do 6-loops from trail head to the first vista and back or do as many as you can or want. Please bring as much water and food as necessary for the duration of the day. If training for a big summit your pack should have some weight in it... you self-limit the amount for you. Listen to your body and your needs. Rain or shine... so dress appropriately!
