From there we will consolidate vehicles and carpool to the trailhead.

This will be a fairly early time to hit this look out.  There still may be snow covering sections of the trail.  Because of this fact I may have to require microspikes and poles for this hike.  We may also have to do a little route finding if the trail is obscured by snow.  Due to these facts I am making this a leader's permission required hike.  Please be comfortable hiking on snow.  Participants should also have a history of doing hikes with this amount of elevation gain.
