***FAST HIKE, NOT FOR BEGINNERS***
Let's blow off some steam after paying off Uncle Sam!
Going up white trail, red to yellow. Some of us may scale the face (level 4 scramble off-trail to the right of the white trail) but we will meet at the flagpole.
Total distance is 4 miles approx. and we expect to finish in 2 hours or less. The elevation gain is almost 1600' so be prepared to climb, especially in the steep beginning.
Bring a headlamp, snack, your favorite beverage (glass containers not recommended).
Whistling Willies for brews and grub after the hike.
Park in the large lot 0.2 miles NORTH of the
