Veedeer Pond via Saddle Trail, Garland Ranch (~4 miles, ~1100 ft)

This week let's visit Saddle Trail. It's a ~1000ft climb in ~one mile; it's steep and painful and it will feel like it will never end :-) On our return we'll hike down Vedeer Trail back to our vehicles. And if the sky is clear we'll enjoy views of the setting sun.

Bring your headlamps just in case we get caught in the dark. Layers, water, and munchies (if you like) will be helpful.

Saddle is a difficult climb. If you are unsure about your ability to hike at a steady pace uphill with the group, please consider another event.

We are meeting at the East Garzas Entrance to Garland Park at 5:30 PM. We'll start at 5:45 PM.

Driving Directions to East Garzas from Hwy 1 and Rio Rd.

Dogs are welcome. Rain will cancel.

    So far, no rain for Garland but may be a bit breezy along the ridge so bring a layer.
