On Rt 3 towards Twin Mountain, at the 5 Corners (to Ranger Station on left) take a right to Gale River Trailhead. Go 1.6 miles and take right (Hiker sign), go 3/10’s to parking lot for Gale River Trail. We plan to start hiking at 8:30. Gentle start to warm up and gradually increases in steepness. There are 2 water crossings that can be tricky at high water. The hut will be open for your needs including water fill up, change of clothes, and bathrooms. There are usually leftover snacks to purchase as well as hot water available. Galehead summit is only a 15 minute hike from there. Flag raising by noon. Partial list reading of the victims will be read immediately following the flag raising. Wear something patriotic. Bring your camera, and you may need hat, gloves and warm jacket (get high mountain weather forecast in AM) as we sit around for 2 hours. Please email me to let me know you are joining us so we can look for you. I’ll be the one with the (4) 5′ pvc flagpoles.
