UPDATE(05/22/09): This was originally planned to be a family hike but since nobody responded I am changing it to UTHRs. Ops, it looks that the system does not allow me to change the committee. Never mind, this hike is now basically open to everyone who wants to make a last minute plan for tomorrow. This hike is very popular and it is excellent for early season warm up. We are going to hike a loop back over the ridge so it will be about 7 miles hike with 1,700 feet elevation gain. Sign up will be open by 9 p.m. tonight. This is a very nice hike for kids with beautiful waterfalls. It is currently snow-free and with nice weather (http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=47.87122277456414&lon;=-121.6680908203125&site;=sew&smap;=1&marine;=1&unit;=0≶=en sunny, with a high near 71) it is going to be an awesome hike. The pace will be slow to moderate (school age kids pace).
