Last comments:
  • Bring a discover pass for parking at the trailhead
  • Trail etiquette - give the right of the way to uphill hikers, smaller group, and faster hikers
  • Speak up if you have any concern about the pace/safety/anything
  • Carpooling is recommended. Don’t forget to reimburse the drivers before they ask, and factor in the possibility of a group lunch after the hike when coordinating.
  • Leave no trace :)
