Bring lunch, snacks, drinking water (lots).

Wear hiking clothes and shoes appropriate for the weather (watch the forecast).

After signing up, meet at the Warrior Mountains Trading Company (address and map above).

    Janice, is this trail the one that goes to Shiprock and Needles Eye? I would like to know because maybe I could bring 3 11year olds and my son. I miss the forest so much. Barbara Waid
