Have fun Rick. Sounds like you guys will have a great time. Hug your wife and kids extra lots. You'll all appreciate it.
Dale, I'm with you. I used to run 3.1 miles in under 18 minutes in high school. Lot of water, years and pounds have passed under that bridge. I was thinking start in the park on the west end of the loop and work down to the south and southeast and then head for 118. Car left on 118. Car left up top. It is about 3.1 miles and about a 1700 foot drop. As long as we keep heading down, it shouldn't be TOO bad.
