Meeting Location/Time: Meet in the parking area for the horse stables inside the state park near the trailhead at 9:45AM. Hike will start at 10AM. 

Trail Rating: Green (Mellow hike, easy to follow, elevation gain of 1,000 ft and under, low altitude. Novice hikers welcome.)

Side note #1: When I scouted this trail it was a bit slippery due to snow, ice, and wet conditions. This makes for slow and careful hiking on the way down from the overlook. Hopefully this won’t be an issue for us, but be prepared for muddy conditions if it has rained a few days prior.

Side note #2: I had no cell phone reception or Wi-Fi connection in the park until I was at the overlook.
Please note: In order to attend an official meetup, you MUST have a signed Liability Waiver on file. It takes less than a minute to complete and covers you for all future official Girls Who Hike meetups.
