July 15th, 9am at Hancock Town Site, east side of Williams Pass Trail head with a full tank of gas, lunch, water and snacks. However, please note the following information:
We are planning on Meeting at the Hancock Townsite/Alpine Tunnel Trailhead on the St. Elmo side of Williams at 9am on July 15th. This is not a work day so we don’t need volunteers. We may clear a tree or two and I know of one rock that will need moved to travel the full pass, but the goal is to assess the condition with the FS. topics for discussion during this site visit will include possibily moving the opening month from August to September; the current road condition, future signage and any work that will need to be completed sometime this summer before the opening date.
Until the west tunnel grate is repaired, Williams will be run as an out and back from the Salida side.
If you need directions to the meeting site, please contact Rick A.
