It will lead us to the summit of North Mountain. We will take a break and enjoy the view. From the top we will go down the paved side of North Mountain to the bottom, touch the gate and go back up the same way. The paved portion is very steep but a steady climb. We will go at a fast to moderate pace. Because this is a training hike, there will be no sweep.

    Hi Sara and Jay,
    Would like to join you on this hike but judging from my performance on our last meeting what is your opinion of my ability to hold to your plan for this hike? To jog your memory, I was on the hike with you all when you were talking about the Grand Canyon trip and the Quartz Mt. trip. Jane-Clare
