RED/BLACK HIKE NOTES: personal trail map REQUIRED, trail map & water check at trailhead before we begin, we may split up based on pace and you must be comfortable navigating solo to catch up
I will be leading the group, and welcome all girls as long as they're prepared. We will stick together as a group, but you must feel comfortable with some distance between us between markers (such as trail signs, forks in the trail, stream crossings, etc.) due to differences in pace. 
I will be floating from a sweeper to the middle of the group, so I am seeking a volunteer to help lead!
