Michael Coppock: Pete is correct, I rechecked GE, and I think the LZ is still 1994-2000' elevation. The Quarry looks like 2300' elevation, not 2008' as erroneously reported below.

Michael Coppock: Saturday, Pete R and I parked at the gate at 1643, on a blisteringly hot day, and pushed bikes up the hill. I wanted to get Pete's opinion on a low launch that I had noted on my last ride up the hill to the upper parking launch. At 0.7 miles, elevation 1994' there is a spacious unimproved [so
