those coming from bend can meet at the starbucks in cascade village shopping center (trader joe's, best buy). arrive by 6:20, leave by 6:30. i'll be at sisters coffee by 7:00, we'll do a quick assessment of carpooling assignments and head out from there. 3-4 cars will be needed, depending on their size. i can take 3 total in my car, already have one passenger from redmond. bring $5 for gas for the drivers, and a NW Forest Pass (one per car, i have mine).
the route from sisters takes us past black butte, suttle lake, and hoodoo ski area. at the first junction, veer right on hwy 22 toward detroit lake. after 21 miles, between mileposts 60 and 61, take a right onto whitewater road (#2243). 7.4 miles of good gravel road to the trailhead.
suggest you check this site tomorrow morning for last-minute cancellations. drivers should leave on time. we'll leave sisters coffee no later than 7:15. if you're late to the carpool site, feel free to drive yourself to the trailhead.
Limited to 12 people. Please keep your RSVPs current.
