Trip details

Will gather at the parking lot and work out car pool logistics.  Extra vehicles will be parked at the side streets.   

Trail information

  • round trip distance: 14 km
  • elevation gain: minimal
  • high point: 915 m.
  • net hiking time: 4 hours
  • rating: easy
  • pace: fast (no running)  

suggested gear

  • hiking boot/shoes
  • shell jacket; core jacket

additional info

  • estimate team size: 4 -5 (unless additional vehicle(s) are available)
