Tortugas Thursday BONUS hike

Bonus Thursday hike! Come meet us at Tortugas Mountain (aka "A Mountain", because it has a big "A" on it). 


Distance - Variable, depends on what we decide to do. Please plan between 2 and 6 mi.

Elevation Gain - Variable, but it is some 800 ft to the top of Tortugas Mountain.

Fees - None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!

Duration - Variable; we finish when we finish. We aim for finishing by 8 - 30 pm or by sunset, whichever happens earlier.

Pet Friendly - Yes. You must have a way to restrain your dog (you shouldn't need be told to bring a proper leash). Ask the other hikers before unleashing your dog.

Skill Level - Variable, If you're a beginner, please come and let us know, we might pick an easier route!

Terrain -  loose, steep mountainside. We usually stay on trails but we may go off-trail if people desire something more challenging.

Weather - Typically doesn't matter, we usually hike rain or shine, unless there is a lightning storm or a particularly bad wind storm. We won't decide to cancel until an hour before the event.

Afterwards - We may head to a restaurant for libations, but we'll discuss this towards the end of the hike.

Meet - At Las Cruces -  6:20 pm at Tortugas Mountain's Sunset Parking lot (see directions below). GPS -  [masked]°N,[masked]°W (see on Google MapsOpenStreetMapUSGS topo map)

Time - We will hit the trail by 6:30. If you might be late call or text.

    Is the post correct that the group is going to A Mountain tonight and not Pine Trail Loop?
