Meet at the bulletin board by the kiosk near the park entrance at 1:30 p.m. Bring snacks and water if you wish. The hike is expected to last about three hours and involve traveling over uneven, rocky terrain, possibly with a degree of rock scrambling. The hike is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is not necessary; however, minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult and have signed permission of a parent or legal guardian. Dogs are not permitted on the hike.
