    It's a great little trail and the weather was beatiful; however, I must say, the most memorable was watching those two little girls figure their way up the precipice! Hope some others got a chance to see that too.

    It was great meeting Linda and everybody else, I consider the Billy goat trail a difficult hike though very fun and challenging for a local hike.

      The National Park Service does not allow dogs on Billy Goat A (the section we'll be hiking)

    Take a lunch or something to eat. There is a scenic overlook that we will visit so that you can take pictures. Plenty of parking across the street from Angler's and on the side of the road. Meet at the parking lot across the street from Anglers.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
