Trail: Caps Ridge Trail
Milage: 2.5 to the summit, 5.0 miles round trip
Elevation gain : roughly 2700 feet.
Book Time : 2 hours and 35 minutes.
The plan: If we have a great weather forecast, I would like everyone to meet and be ready to go at the trailhead by 8:00am. I am expecting a slower than book time pace due to the extra stuff we have to carry. I’d like to be on the summit for 11:15 and start working on getting the flagpole up by 11:30. Flight time will be from then until 2:00pm where we’ll pack it all down and head back the same way we came. I have a complete flagpole setup and flag ready to go. Lookin forward to seeing everyone.
If we have a lousy forecast impending, we’ll move the start time accordingly.
