    How many picnic tables at this location? Is this more of a stand-and-eat potluck with tables mainly used for the buffet?

    February 21, 2014

    • Lee Z.

      Oh no....don't put that on the Grand Poobah...I will gladly stand in honor of all the hikers who have the guts to come on this hike.
