Details

Meet at the Section 16 Trailhead at 9:00 where we will begin an initial gentle ascent. Although it is April, please "be prepared" for snow, ice, rain or wind by bringing foot traction devices, hiking poles and a raincoat.The ascent is through a heavily forested area that receives very little sunlight which can make the trail quite icy after a snow storm or overnight freeze. At the top of the incline, we will stop for a break to admire the views while enjoying a snack prior to completing the loop back to the trailhead.

The return is mostly downhill and again through a heavily wooded area which could possibly have some snow and ice on the ground. No rabbits please.
