A heads-up on the plan for this coming Sunday. Since the reconnaissance hike will not take place until Friday afternoon, a full trip description will not be available until Friday night or Saturday morning. For those who like to plan ahead, therefore, a preview of the basic plan follows.
Starting point: Irrigation dam behind 700-Year stadium.
Trip length 10 – 13 km depending on the route chosen. Altitude gain about 800 meters.
Duration about 5 hours.
Terrain: some quite steep sections, particularly on the way down, but all on good trails. The possible exception being a (fairly flat) section close to the end that may have become overgrown in the monsoon.
Rating: moderate. Nothing unduly strenuous or death-defying, but overall length and altitude gain will require a reasonable degree of physical fitness.
Proper trip description with maps and photos to follow after the recce.
