[1] The Pre-hike Scout is a preliminary scouting hike on the trail to ensure that no changes have been made since the last hike or since the publication of the official description of the trail. Anyone can join me on the pre-hike. I do ask that you either email or message me to let me know that you want to join me, and to get details of when and where to meet me.

Kind regards,


Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

I recommend using Google Maps or GPS to get to "North/South Lake Campground." From there we'll make our way as a group to the trailhead. After the hike, we can decide on a post-hike venue. I'll provide links or a synopsis of available venues.
