Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.

Itinerary:

Join me for a leisurely loop hike in East Palisades. 

You will need $5 (or use your CRNRA annual pass) for parking (unless the government shutdown continues).

We will start at the Indian Trail trailhead parking lot.  First we will head out towards the park entrance and then head down towards the river.  Our plans include a visit to the Bamboo Forest and then start heading up towards the Observation Deck overlooking the River and a return to the parking lot where we started.  

Use caution driving into the CRNRA.

No restroom facilities at this park.
