We will meet during breakfast to assemble carpools and leave the Ohanapecosh Campground at 7:00am.  It will take about an hour to get to the Sunrise Point parking lot. For folks not over-nighting at Ohanapecosh, we can arrange to meet at the Sunrise parking lot. We should be on the trail around 8:30am. Volunteer drivers will need an America the Beautiful Pass or to purchase a day pass.

Be sure to bring plenty of water as water sources can be limited on the way. Also, much of the elevation gain comes in the second-half of the hike.
