We will be meeting at the Trailhead at 9am.  It is up to you whether you drive down the morning of or camp the night before.  I will be camping.

I realize it may be a bit much for me to hope this trail will be clear, but I am going to head down and check it out in in the next couple of weeks.  This is a hike I have been wanting to do for quite a while.  A hike description up to Nannie Ridge is available through the WTA. However, we will be making it into a loop with 4.8 miles of it along the PCT.  Should be beautiful!
