Needs a location
Ramble around Circle X Ranch, up, down, over, yonder, to places you've probably never seen.
Trailblazing, Bushwhacking, Exploratory: Leader's choice, anything possible, won't know until we get there. Be prepared for anything.

Don't sign up if you've been a "no show" at any Meetup. Directions will not be sent to "no shows."
Please, no guests. You must be signed up at Fun in the Sun Club Meetup, thereby agreeing to Meetup's Release of Liability.
Start Time: Arrive EARLIER. It's a good idea to aim for 8:45AM so if you get lost or there's traffic, you'll still be on time. We'll leave when everyone arrives and wait until 9:00AM at the latest. If you're lacing up your boots at 9:00AM, we'll be gone.
Meeting Place: Will be sent to participants by day before hike.
Estimated Stats: 5-7 miles, 700'-1,500'. We usually finish before 1:00PM.
Pace: Moderately paced, about 2.5MPH overall average, sometimes slower.
Bring: Bring a rejuvenating snack for a 5-7 mile/1,000' + hike. We take very short breaks--seldom more than 5 mins; plenty water (3 Liters + recommended), first aid kit, sunscreen, trekking poles if you like using them.
Wear: Layers, hat, sunglasses, your best lug soles, long sleeves, pants for brush protection. Bring a headlamp.
Dogs: Sorry, no dogs for this one. Some areas don't allow them.
Leave nothing of value in your vehicle at any trailhead.
