    Ditto to Wallace and Vicki . in addition, as a beginner I really appreciate , despite my being a little slow, how o encouraging Carol and Art were as I made my way through some of the more difficult hills.....I will definitely be back.

    I wanted to add that Carol does a great job of planning interesting variations on this hike, and leading large groups.
    The people that came were really fun too, and I enjoyed the conversations on the trail with everyone.
