GWH Trail Rating - Green: Mellow hike, easy to follow, elevation gain of 1,000 ft and under. Novice hikers welcome! 
*Although this hike would be classified as green according to the GWH trail rating, if you are coming up from lower altitudes, just keep in mind this hike starts at about 7,000 ft. 

This hike is one of my favorites. It offers amazing views of Mt Elden and the San Francisco Peaks. There are also a few small caves on the top that we can explore. 
Dogs are allowed on the hike as long as they are friendly and are kept on a leash at all times. Please bring plenty of water and your ten essentials. Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hiking with everyone soon! 

***In order to attend an official meetup, you MUST have a signed Liability Waiver on file. Please see the Group Rules for details/link to sign. It takes 60 seconds to complete and one waiver clears you for all meetups!***
