Friday, 11/5: Drive to the charcoal kilns for connecting with group (late afternoon).

Sunday, 11/7: Breakfast, break camp and head 4 miles back to the trailhead.   

Weather: Expect warm days and chilly/windy evenings and mornings. Dressing in layers is the best way to manage the possible range of temperatures. Precipitation is always a possibility, so rain gear is mandatory.

Bring: 10 Essentials (no kidding, every person needs a personal first aid kit); water filtration; food for each meal plus extra snacks; water bottle and filter system; sleeping bag and pad; tent; broken-in hiking boots; layered clothing; jacket; rain gear; wide hat; compass; toilet paper & trowel; compact camp stove; fire starter; headlamp; sunglasses; sunscreen; insect repellant; camera and entertainment (book, card game, etc). Topographic maps of the area will be provided at the trailhead.

Cost: $20. Backpacking permit for each person is included. Maximum 8 people. When capacity is reached, a waiting list will be in effect. Cancel before October 20 to receive a refund.

Other considerations: As with any backcountry experience, this one is "Leave no Trace" - our trash comes out with us. Keep your food safe from critters - mandatory use of either bear cannisters or impenetrable food sacks.

Directions: TBD. Carpooling is highly encouraged.
