Yep, I am back, hiked up to Echo Mnt. today and met Jason at the trailhead and hiked up with him, this was the first hike we met.

Anyway, this is trip # 22 in the Robinson 101 hikes book if you have it. 5.5 miles one way and 2400' elevation gain. It Should take about 3 hours to get to camp depending on the speed of our hikers, I will be a little slower than before, so say 4 hours at the most. It is a nice, easy wide trail/road with informational signs all the way up with pictures of the old railway.

 

Looking forward to hiking with you again,

travis

Hey Travis,

Hope this question isn't too silly - will there be snow at the elevation we are camping at?
