Proper hiking boots and equipment is recommended. Bring snacks, plenty of water and a lunch. The day will begin at 8 a.m. with a continental breakfast at Artisan Coffee. Shuttles will take hikers to the trailhead at 9 a.m. Shuttles will return hikers to Artisan Coffee at 5 p.m. for a picnic dinner hosted by Artisan Coffee, Janesville Town Council and Pizza Factory.
