Have you been wanting to try out backpacking, get back into it after a hiatus, try out some new gear before taking it to the Sierras, or just ease into the season? This is your trip!
We'll take Gazos Trail to Olmo Fire Road. There is a 1,300 ft elevation gain over the 6 miles. The trail camp is not next to any water, but there is a source approx. 15 minutes away. The trail camps are cute - many with logs carved for benches and some have mini tables. There is a pit toilet!
Because dogs are only allowed on the fire road, I will likely be hiking out the same way we came in. There are other nice options for making a loop that are approximately the same distance. Nobody will be left to hike on their own (unless that's what you really want - in which case you probably aren't coming on our MeetUp!)
The fee is $10 for parking and $15 per site (up to 8 people), so we will pay $15 or $30 for the campsite(s). We will split the cost. Please bring small change.
*Have a look at Lorraine's suggested packing list on the BABW page. Under More, select Files.
**Because this is geared toward beginners, please send me a message after RSVPing with some brief info on your experience, any major gear you need, and any questions you may have.
As the date gets closer, I'll set-up a Google doc so we can coordinate rides and shared gear.
Looking forward to seeing you out there!!
Here is a link to the Google Doc. Please fill out your info. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoVldvM72XKtdGpwVmVjdF9YS1NCenVBdzloR1owRkE&usp=sharing
