Details

The club hasn't made this trip in several years. We will meet up in Hawthorne at the gas station. There is a Safeway nearby if you need to add to your supplies. The trek to the trailhead isn't far but make sure you top off your tanks in town and that your spare Jerry cans are full. It could be cold at the cabin, so we may opt to camp in the valley. We will play it by ear.
