We'll meet at the Eaton Ck. TH and shuttle to the start of the hike. We'll need to know whether you'll be hiking 6 miles or 11.5 miles when you arrive - to do a proper shuttle. Please bring at least 1 or 2 liters of water - depending on the distance you've chosen - lunch and snacks. Sunscreen and bug spray are optional.
