Where you'll be

We'll meet at Brockway Summit Trailhead, after some campers and I arrive from Watson Lake. The quarter-day hiker group will summit after 1.2 miles of hiking up to a scenic viewpoint at 7,768 feet before returning down the trail. The rest of the full-day hikers will continue with me towards the Mt. Rose Wilderness. If you continue beyond the first scenic viewpoint, there are options to return to Hwy 267 or to Kings Beach (via Forest Service Rds)
