With regard to the Lone Cone Trail on Meares Island; Be advised to bring your cell phone as it is always wise to have the ability to communication in case of emergencies particularly in the wilderness. If you do not have a cell phone, we have a set of 2-way radios for your use and reception is excellent at the top of Lone Cone.
Communication also allows you to 'adjust' your pick-up time, and we'll do our best to accommodate any changes. With that in mind many hikers are amazed that it takes as long to descend the Mtn. as it took to go up, so please keep that in mind.
Also bring a jacket to keep you warm on the boat trip and in case of fog which can occur at any time in the Summer.
