This trip is the fourth field trip associated with the Mountain Hiking School (MHS) and is intended for Mountain Hiking School Students only. This trip for "The Bushwackers" will be led by Scott Farquhar/Brad Warren. A second trip, MHS Field Day 4.2, has been added to the schedule for "The Trail Blazers" and will be led by David Wasson/JoAnn Herkenhoff.

The trip will be to Peak 8228 in the Poudre Canyon and will start at the Eggers pull off on CO-14, note this trip will be 90% off trail. Once again the MHS students will be divided into two groups, "The Bushwackers" and "The Trail Blazers" (assignments will be discussed during the April 9th MHS Classroom).

Information will be sent to MHS students before the April 9th classroom adn students will be asked to develop plans for these two routes before the classroom session. There plans will be discuss on April 9th.
