    For all who is going look for my red ford ranger at the Sierra Gateway gas station in Southlake at 5am sharp. See you all there!

    For all who is going on this hike we will be on a dirt road called Canebrake Rd which is a rough dirt road and a high clearance vehicle is recommended, after we get off Canebrake Rd we will be back on smooth pavement all the way to the trailhead

    Hey Steve, Is this trip just a day hike?

    February 20, 2013

    • Steve

      Yes, but it will be a long day hike if you decide to do the two peaks which is optional.

    Hey guys I will have all the details on this hike by this weekend. With my busy work schedule I haven't had the time to type it up, but I will tell you this: This is going to be a fast pace hike with very few breaks except on the peaks and of course it is going to be very strenous as all my hikes are, and it will be a long day and its possible we will be hiking back in the dark.
