4:30 PM trailhead

A nice hike through the woods to begin conditioning for summer hikes. We will hike at a moderate pace (approx. 2 mph), our goal is to finish in daylight. Bring a sack dinner.

Warning to people with allergies: I am allowing one dog and only one dog on this hike (pets count as trip members for roster size).  I have hiked outside the club with Raven and seen that she has a good owner who keeps her close on  a leash and packs out  the bag. Having allergies myself, I would never take someone's word for it that they take care of their dog. I have personally vetted Raven, but use your own judgement.
