Notes

 

Be prepared for for possible wind, rain conditions.  Trail is good, but there are a few short exposure areas on trail. 

Morning break stop.

Bring small bills to pay for car pooling.  Cost to car pool is 30 cents per mile divided by the number of people in car, including the driver.  Drivers do have the option to charge differently. 

Thunder within hearing distance, lightening is reason for trip to turn around.
