We wlll make a giant circle around the open spaces at Elk Meadow.  Parts of the trail will be rocky and other parts through grassy areas with a total distance of about 4.5 miles with 680 feet of elevation gain.  MICRO SPIKES AND POLES ARE MANDATORY.  You will receive an e mail on Tuesday with more updated weather information.  If it snows a lot this may turn into a snowshoe hike. On past hikes we have actually seen herds of elk in this area.
