Mark,

Do you want to backpack or bag peaks?

Thanks,

Just don't know the trails that well. One of the guys is flying out from Illinois and want home to be impressed, not sure I want to be on the busy trails, and getting older and don't want to miss out. Lol

It helps to know skill levels, preferences, etc.

Hi Marktrog,

Your post was from the "Climbing" section to the "Backpacking" section.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
