This is not a long hike but there would be steep parts depending on which route we will take. The distance will be longer if we take a less steep route. Please bring 10 Es. Please email before Friday, 6 pm on June 25 for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info.
