We'll go about a mile in from the Payne Creek/Brookside TH outside Bailey, then turn left to follow Payne Creek Trail up.  Our goal is about 4 miles in from the TH, top out at 9900 feet, have lunch, and then back again. 

A map of the proposed trip can be found here. Note that we will not be going all the way to the top.

You need to be fully vaccinated against the SARS-Cov-2 virus to participate.
