  • The best place to park is the Lookout. If you Google it you should be about tu grub directions easily enough. You can also pay for your daily permits at the visitor centre there.

    If you don't know any of the trails, check out this thread as there's some links to maps on there.

    The week after I should be about on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday if it's any good to you?

    If we manage to sort something out, We can stick a post in the London Calling thread and see if there's anyone else up for it from there?
