Participant Information

I'd like to follow the route in Matt Gunn's guidebook.   It's pretty straightforward with no significant exposure,  There are two short steps of class 3, the rest is hiking and occasionally using your hands a bit.  I'd like to keep a moderate pace, it's a pretty short day so no need to be super fast, but I'd like to keep ahead of the crowds that develop later for the Flat Iron as they share the same trail.

I'm out in the valley and I'd like to meet at the gravel parking area on the north side of the 264th street overpass on highway 1 at 7:00, but we can adjust to suit everyone's needs.   I will be driving a white Dodge Ram pickup truck.
