CONFIRMED DATE CHANGE... This year we'll try going from the North/East side, a more direct route to the highest point in the Parks, somewhat optimistically called a Peak! It's all pretty flat on top, as you see above, but very lush and well worth seeing each year. This access takes us past Pedernal to the next forest road, and then up from 9000' to the high point at 10,500. If possible we will loop this, but given the light use of SPP trails, we need to make sure there is a trail to follow. Our route should be about 12 miles, either way, so Moderate by SWEL standards.
