Meet at 4:30 PM at the bottom of the Cable Line Trail.  We'll head up a short portion of Cable Line and turn left onto the TMT.  This hike will end in the dark, so please only sign up if you are comfortable hiking with a headlamp. We'll keep a steady conditioning pace with an average of about 2.0 mph.

Drive I90 to the High Point Way exit #20.  Take a Right off of the exit ramp and another Right onto the frontage road. Follow the road down to the gate, but park there. Don't head up to the parking area, because we'll be back after the gate is closed. No pass required.

 Bring a headlamp with an extra set of batteries. We should be to  Tiger 2 before it gets dark, but after that it will be a night hike.
