Laguna to Sweetwater Bridge in Cuyamaca (mostly downhill), while Mike will lead the hike from Sweetwater Bridge to Pioneer Mail (mostly uphill). When the two groups meet, drivers of the cars to Pioneer Mail will swap keys with drivers of cars to Sweetwater Bridge so that everyone will have a ride back to the morning meeting point. Pack snack, lunch and water. Forecast for Wednesday is sunny with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.The hike begins at 8:30AM.

Here we will divide into two groups, one headed to Pioneer Mail, the other to Sweetwater Bridge, and it is here everyone will return at the end of the hike.
