Banks to Vernonia Trail
The Banks to Vernonia trail is 22.4 miles point to point but we will be doing a total of 9 miles out and back. It is a paved trail so should be in good shape even if there is rain the the days preceding the hike. If the leader has not had a chance to scout this hike, it will be an exploratory hike; be flexible! Registration with leader via e mail required. I will confirm and give meeting details several days prior to hike.
Hiking Distance: 9 miles
Elevation Gain: 300'
Driving Distance: 124 RT
