Second opportunity to hike this Three-Peak Loop. It should be warm and sticky by the end of June so we'll end the White Oak portion with a dip in the pools at the base of the falls.

Start out early from White Oak parking lot and reach Old Rag summit (or at least rocky part) just after dawn. Then onto Robertson, then White Oak. Lots o'climbing on this route -- the fireroads AND the trails. We'll end by coming down White Oak and stopping for a swim.

Hitting Old Rag first to avoid throngs of people clogging up the route.

This hike is going to have a lot of fire road -- and lots of long bouts of climbing (fireroad and trail).

19 miles, 6290 elevation GAIN (not sure total elevation change). The hike will follow essentially a three-leaf clover pattern so there will be bail-out opportunities and options for a shorter route. Dave and I did a shorter version of this hike yesterday and I went through 3L of water (I think he did too) so we're brainstorming some water/food staging opportunities. I think we'll need it come end of June.

Meet at 5am at the White Oak parking lot.
