TIMELINE:
2 places to meet us.

1st option to meet:
8 AM - At our 6200 South Park n Ride: Start gathering, greet hikers, arrange carpools as needed, announcements, final instructions
8:15 AM - Drive to the place where we'll meet our group 35 minutes away.
8:45 - 8:50 AM: Meet up with all hikers - Read the 2nd option below
9 AM - Start hiking
10:30 AM - Turn around and start heading back to the cars
11:30 AM - Off the trail around this time

Some may keep hiking longer than this. Some may hike shorter than this. You decide what you want to do.
12:15 PM - Arrive back in the Salt Lake valley

2nd option to meet:
8:45 AM: if you arrive early please wait for us to all arrive at the dirt pull out stated below. DO NOT GO TO THE TRAILHEAD YET.
At the Hwy 32 and US 40 intersection, you'll stop 100 - 200 ft. on the LEFT side of the road, in the dirt pull out area, AFTER turning on Hwy 32 heading toward Kamas. Just wait for us there. Once we have everyone, if necessary, we'll carpool one more time to the trailhead a mile away. Follow me one mile further to the trailhead, which is on the RIGHT side of the road. By parking at the same time we can be more effective with our space. See google map:

This outing is part of a series of hikes offered weekly throughout the year. We warmly, enthusiastically welcome new hikers! When you attend you are joining a FREE, consistent, friendly, seasoned hiking group with a variety of hiking abilities.

If you are concerned about your level of fitness, please text me in advance and let me know if you want an easier, slower, shorter hike so I can pair you with the right hiker.

New hikers join us nearly every week.

I'm eager to help you have a great time, especially if this is your first time joining us.

We rarely cancel an outing regardless of the weather conditions UNLESS you can't get to our meeting place.  Hikes may be shortened but they are rarely if ever cancelled.

Because our hikes occur so frequently, detailed information isn't included. ALL of our hikes are very beautiful, safe and include options for easy and moderate hikers.

Each hike is similar in length even though they vary in location, terrain, etc.
