Total hike distance: @ 3.5 miles
Total time:  2.0 hrs
Difficulty:  Moderate -  the hike climbs some relatively steep hills but the footing is good.  If you think you might need a little extra time, or to shorten the hike, drive to the top of Del Ganado and/or arrive at 3 and request a shuttle from a GWC member.  Then hike at your own leisurely pace to a designated overlook and wait for the group to arrive there at about 3:30.

Everyone is welcome:
Kids  – Great!  I’m bringing 3
Dogs – sure, well behaved and on leash please since we are walking as a group.  Be ready to pick up after rover!

Raindate:  None!
Rain does not cancel
Dress appropriately and be prepared for mud.
After all this is a watershed and what better time to walk than in the rain so we can see the watershed in action!
