We will meet at the rhododendron garden at 9:30am.  

We will meet at the picnic tables in the rhododendron garden. Once we are all together we will follow the outer loop tail through the Five Mile Drive. The trail is fairly easy with some roots to watch out for tripping over.  We will check out the views and look for wild life while on the trail. Also there are bathrooms along the way we can use if we need to make a pit stop.
