We will meet on the second level of the south east parking lot at Santa Fe. (THIS IS THE ONE CLOSEST TO LONE MOUNTAIN ROAD).
From there, we will form carpools and head to the trailhead.

The $2 for me is always optional and extremely appreciated. Hiking is free, but we spend hours researching, exploring, planning, writing, posting, and following up on events. We answer emails, phone calls, and texts. We're happy to teach you new trails and techniques, and build a community that's safe and friendly
