**Please note that this activity is part of a weekend stay at our beach house and that all activities are subject to change based on conditions and needs of the group.**

This trail is 25 miles and 2800 gain over the whole thing, BUT  we will not be doing the whole trail as we have limited time that day because we must be to the ferry by mid afternoon at the latest and need to clean the house prior to departure.  We may decide to choose a closer section of this trail due to time constraints.   I anticipate two to three hours maximum of hiking time on Sunday so not much more than six miles roundtrip.

Please be fit enough to do activities of the moderate to strenuous level.  We may even choose to do a snow outing/snowshoe so bring microspikes and snowshoes just in case.
