Meet at trailhead at 1000.  If car pooling from the church of the nazzerine, meet there at 0900.

This hike is a conditioning hike for folks in fair condition.  Gain of 1000 ft per mile for each of the two miles from trailhead to top.  This elevation gain rate is significant -- not insane, but significant.  Goal is 1 hour up and 1 hr back down.  Not much flower smellin' on this hike.
