March 14-17, Friday-Monday, Montecito-Sequoia Lodge trip begins at the Lodge Friday morning, March 14, so allow driving time in your schedule.

We will drive to the Lodge Friday morning and chains or 4WD may be required. Coordinator: Monique Alkemade, monique_alkemade@yahoo.com.

The spacious Montecito Sequoia Lodge, based at 7500' elevation, provides a breathtaking view of the snow-capped peaks of the Great Western Divide and is set amid large and imposing fir and pine trees. Some of California's most scenic trails begin at the steps of the lodge.
