Carpool Cost: Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $56.00 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Will this event occur rain or shine? Yes, if the rain is too heavy to hike we will visit FDR's Little White House (admission cost: $7.00).

The White Candle Trail was opened December 9, 2006, and is the newest trail in FDR State Park. It passes by the Odie Overlook, which offers a stunning panoramic view which includes Dowdell's Knob, which can be seen at the end of the ridge to the West.
