Meet at 7:30 at Haggen's Foods at 1313 Cooper Point Road on the left-hand side of their large parking lot (left - as you look at the front of the store from the parking lot).  Look over near the trees.

We will cut out trees that have fallen on the trail (log out) and brush back (pruning) the most bothersome encroaching vegetation.  The trail work will involve hiking up the trail about 1.1 miles and 1,000 feet in elevation gain.  Our plan is to return to the park and ride location (Haggen Foods) by 5 PM.
