Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Clean out your hydration pack and dust off your trail shoes cause this Saturday we are hiking Mt. Baden Powell! This is a fun half-day 8 mile hike we do every summer. The plan is to be at the trailhead early Saturday morning. Most likely 0730. In the past some folks meet at the gym and carpool/caravan up the mountain. Each vehicle will need a Forest Adventure Pass to park at the Vincent Gap trail head. These cost $5 and are available at nearly all sporting goods stores and ranger stations.
