Details:

35-mile reverse route through the Gorge is planned again this week with the optional 11 mile extension before starting the climb to Nada Tunnel (group decides). **The long route has 1.5 miles on hard-packed limestone/gravel.** Repeating the whoop-de-doos out to Sky Bridge adds a couple miles as does the optional climb up Sky Bridge for anyone interested. Bring a light for the Nada Tunnel on the 35-mile route. Once we enter the Gorge, the only water source is at the Gladie Visitor Center so plan accordingly please.
