Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 20.  Please be aware that we will be moving members above 20 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times.  People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.   


We'll hike at a moderate pace and hope to get in at least 4.5 miles in two hours.  There are some hills and rough terrain, but we won't leave anyone behind. We'll stop at the top of hills and make sure everyone keeps up with the group.


After turning onto Dobbs Drive, drive all the way to the top of the hill and turn right into the parking lot. We will gather at the bathroom facility.  Parking is free.
