Out-and-back hike on the Three Rivers Trail in Lincoln National Forest, climbing Sierra Blanca.
Tentative plan is to start on the east trail head at Three Rivers and hike up to the Crest Trail, at which point we'll turn around (I'd love to keep going to Ski Apache but I don't think anyone wants to figure out the car shuffle). I am unsure of mileage or elevation gain, but it's at least 10 mi and over 3000 ft elevation gain. The trail follows a creek and crosses it several times—expect it to be washed out in several places.
Per-vehicle parking is $6 (I think?).
I'm open to either Saturday or Sunday; if you want to reschedule for Sunday, please leave a comment (do not RSVP) ASAP! I'd like to leave early and do our best to avoid thunderstorms (which we probably won't).
More details forthcoming.
