The last time we did this hike was in May, and we were caught by rain, unprepared. It is at high elevation, and has lovely views, is of moderate difficulty, and should take 4-5 hours.
We will meet at the arboretum at 7:50 for an 8:00 start. Transportation to the Hmong village will be either by song tao or personal car, depending on availability and group choice. Bring enough money for either and also for lunch in the village.
