In terms of destinations: this hike starts at the CCC ridge and ends at the Brown Mountain Road's endpoint - sometimes called Brown Mountain Saddle.
It'll be a profound success if that happens!
This is definitely a case where the journey is more interesting than the endpoints.
Alas, these nice trails are eroded, and rugged, and i promise very little in terms of hiking quality. But the scenery is gorgeous, if you can catch your breath.
We are going to play it heavily by the group's interest.
But b/c of the rugged nature of these trails I will ask everyone to stay together.
In any event, should the mission be accomplished, and we find ourselves at Brown Mtn Saddle, the hike will be about 8 mi, 2000' of gain. Whatever the stats say, it'll probably feel harder.
Here's a map: http://daveb.decreation.com/dark-cyn-and-ken-burton-trails.png I didn't add a scale, but those red squares are a mile on each side.
