Trip Leader(s): Ann Howard, Dorothea
Participants:Ann Howard, Dorothea, Ralph Howard

Write Up:

The hike was really, really good - why? - because the trail was re-routed.  This made for an interesting day.  The first half and all the way to the bottom of Goat Knob remains unchanged.  The ascent to Yellow Mountain no longer goes up the ridge and along the gravel road, but winds its way to the front and then does switchbacks to the top.  Total mileage is now 12.6 and the elevation gain was 2743.  And - it did not rain!
