Meeting location: At the Park & Ride in Yucaipa. We will be leaving at 7am and it should take about 1.5 hours to get to the West Entrance of Joshua Tree. 

Carpool: I will be driving but I only have space for three other gals. If more people are interested we will need more volunteer drivers. If you are hitching along, please bring some money for gas compensation for your driver and for the park entrance fee ($25 per car). 

GWH Trail Rating System: Yellow. This is a moderate hike that is low in miles but with some significant elevation gain. Because it is an out & back trail, that gain will be within the first 1.5-2 miles. Please prepare accordingly with sufficient water - the weather is great right now but we still have some time, so I would suggest 3L of water at least. 

We will be hiking as a group and will not leave any girl alone or behind. Please be mindful of this and adjust your speed accordingly. 

Duration: At the moment, I estimate we should be getting home around 2-3pm. However, I expect ladies who are joining the group to be flexible and open-minded on scheduling changes. Consider transportation times, traffic in the park, and carpooling may alter the time frame, so please prepare accordingly.
