Meet at the Fort pull-out, Morrison/Evergreen exit on Rt 285 South at 7:00 am for a not later than 7:15 departure.

We will stop at the Bailey Loaf N Jug, just before we reach the TH, 173 Bulldogger Rd/Cty Rd 43A, turning right and up at the stoplight.

Upon leaving the Loaf N Jug, continue south on Hwy 285 for 3.1 miles, turning left onto Cty Rd 64 (Conoco on the right and  Moore Lumber Ace Hardware on the left).  Cty Rd 64 also is FS Rd 109.    Drive 2.0 miles to the Brookside-McCurdy/Payne Creek Trailhead sign, indicating parking lot on the left.

The approximate 55-mile round trip will require a carpool contribution: (55 x .30) = $16.00 / the number of people in the car, including the driver, rounded.  Please bring small bills.
