      Hey Casey, the map on the meetup is accurate and will give you turn by turn directions to the trailhead. We will be leaving hatch plaza at 7:45, we have a commitment in the evening so we can't carpool but you are more than welcome to follow us up. Text me if you want to meet so we can plan accordingly for the morning. [masked]

    This is From Mike over at Randolph Mountain Club..
    Hey Jay,
    Got out to look at potential work and we have some basic work to be done on one of our "pleasure" paths, Cliffway and the Link, creating a nice loop walk with nice views. I'm cc'ing our field supervisor, Cheryl Byrne who can help with coordinating this, as well as Michelle and Jeff Bean who are members of our our volunteer committee. Provided you and your group are still willing and able to help out, one or two of our regular trail crew will walk with your group and provide loppers and hoes if needed as well as guidance where and when appropriate.
    Many thanks.
    Mike M,
