    This is a beautiful, leisurely hike and the swim at the end was perfect! Will be planning another trek out there soon, with lots of time planned for swimming!

    I will be meeting at the trailhead. A previous engagement will keep me from making it to the park and ride at 1:00.

    I have to change to a no as I have been told it is pretty smokey up there. Asthma and smoke are not a great mix. I hope you do this one again as I love this hike.
