Prepare: Bring a notebook, any maps you might have. Be aware of what gear you have and what gear you need. We will be going over carpooling/shuttle options. Once on the trail each of us will generally need to be self-sufficient for simplicity sake.

Amenities Include: Picnic tables, a large shelter area if there is rain and restrooms. Dogs are allowed at the park as long as they are on a leash. After the meeting, we can explore some of the great side trails in the park. Feel free to bring food if you plan on being hungry.

If you are unable to come to the planning meeting but want to go on the trip, please let Lyle know.
