Change Notice Sent By: Sherry Blumenstock

Original Hike: Tramway Trail South From La Cueva

What Has Changed: We will hike this hike in reverse fro how I normally do it.

More Information: The winterscape has hidden some trail markers and I believe it will be easier to stay on trail this way. It is still an out and back. Please bring poles and spikes if you like. We hiked it today without and had no problems so your choice.

Highlights: Great views of the mountains to the east and the city to the west.

Cautions: Rocky trail, especially at the start and end of the hike. Very little shade.
