    a very good workout in our out door gym with great company. had a great time and as best as I can figure without the Foothills yellow guide book we did 925 up to the campsite and 1175 down so the return trip was 925 down and 1175 up. a very good workout for 4.6 miles.

    Hard to make a backpack anything less than a 5 star event. Mileage may not have been impressive but the amount of work required to do steep mile+ ascents was.

    Tough trail both ways through a mostly dense forest. Nice large campsite about five miles out where we had plenty of time to enjoy meals and share ideas. Thanks Janice for organizing event.
