    There is no reliable water source on this trail anywhere. It's 6 miles up, 6 miles down.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    There's a nice creek at the trailhead, but that doesn't do us much good. I don't know where the other creek would be unless it's on the other side of the loop from the other trailhead where I've never been. I just hike up from the hwy A trailhead to the peak, then back down the same way.

    Hope you can make it Hairbear, it would be good to see you again; never been there but I think CB4 said you had to pack in all your water. I'm excited because I get to see you guys again and because my youngest son is coming! And, I ordered a full lenth zero degree incubator UQ!
    Enjoy the day!

    Yes, and I wondered about that, because hunting is allowed in that area, but the few people I talked to about it say that deer hunting is unlikely on the mountain because there are no ATVs allowed and it would be difficult to get a deer out of the area.
    If anyone thinks it would be dangerous to go on this date, speak up and we can discuss moving the date.

    I doubt we'll see any hunters in that area for the reasons CB4 mentioned; looking forward to it and hoping my new UQ arrives in time. Goy a new pack so my son could use my current one; I like it when he has good gear too! Enjoy the day.
