Notes

To make this very easy I will allow/ed self registrations *BUT* please i ask that you email me and tell me how do you currently ( now) keep in shape ... 

PACE is medium/moderate , so i expect the 3.5mi uphill with 2,500 ft of gain would take us between 2.5 and 3.5 hours. So make sure you can comfortably hike 1 to 1.5 miles an hour UPHILL. Roughly 1.5hrs downhill. So up to 5hrs total ( maybe 5.5hrs) Thus i am thinking to start to meet at the trailhead at 815am.
