7:30am ready to hike. We’ll meet in the parking lot by my car. I have a white Subaru Crosstrek and will pop the trunk. My car will be on the South Side of the parking lot.  Google maps calls our lot ‘High Point Trailhead’. Here is the google maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/QdwirwHW96bwxxe47

Directions: From I-90 take exit 20 and then turn right onto the frontage road paralleling the interstate. In just under 0.5 mile the road ends at a gate. Pass the gate and continue another 0.4 mile to the large lot.

This will be a stay-in-sight social group. This means you can see someone ahead and behind you.   Bring boots with good traction. Poles are advised.
