Meet at the High Point aka Tradition Plateau  Trail Head, exit 20 off of I-90  at 8:30 AM.  Expect to meet for introductions at 8:45 AM. A Discovery Pass is needed to park in the lot at the trailhead.

The trail tread was in reasonably good condition in mid-March with only a few mudholes.  There is some possibility there will be a small amount of snow on the trail at the high point of the hike (1500 ft elevation).  Highly recommend bringing hiking poles and consider bring traction devices such as micro-spikes.
