We will stick together. We will wait till 12:30for the laggards or lost. So if you are always on time get there at 12:15 because the "let's go" whining is so ... People are on their day off so chill out We will not split up as the purpose is more social than hiking. If you are on a tight schedule best to not come. We wait for slow or struggling people. Be aware that laughter and joking is permitted. The more difficult week you just had the better. This is a very nice place to hike the trails are well marked and this is easy enough for just about everyone. We can do lunch afterward. Bring water and we can eat lunch in the woods. Hike at your own risk. Easy for one person is not easy to another person You can always reach me at[masked]
