This is an all weather trip, so please bring equipment for a typical day hike in the Cascades at this time of the year.   Plan on bringing micro spikes, as we might encounter ice on portions of the trail.

Round trip time should be 5-6 hours depending how the group is feeling.  This is a conditioner, so carrying extra weight is advisable.
