Driving Notes:

High clearance and 4WD/AWD vehicles recommended.
Carry Chains or traction tires just in case.

Doggie Notes:
I love doggies and, as long as you are responsible for your doggies while on the hike and the drive, it's all good to bring your fur babies. That being said, be prepared to drive your own car and make sure you account for your own needs as well as your pup and make sure they are under control at all times.

DISCLAIMER:
I am an unpaid volunteer. While I am deeply concerned with the safety of the group and every individual in it, we are all adults here and everyone will need to take responsibility for their own safety while on the trail as well as on the way to and from the trailhead.

How to find us:I drive a Silver Nissan Murano and will park in the row right outside the lower parking lot in front of the REI doors.
