Monroe Park & Ride, 7AM

This is a very popular hike so solitude may be lacking but a pleasurable walk through a valley to an expansive flower-strewn meadow will make the trip worthwhile. We will stop at the 59er Diner on the way home for shakes, sustenance, and socializing. Riders should please bring some cash to help cover drivers' expenses. If you have any questions, please let me know.
