FAST HIKERS ONLY! We'll hike around Green Mountain from the Florida Lot doing a loop with great views of the city lights. The hike will be approximately 6 miles with 970' of elevation, although this may be adjusted depending on conditions. As this hike is longer than usual, please do not sign up for this hike unless you are a reasonably fast hiker. After the hike, those interested will go to Frontroom Pizza for dinner/drinks.
Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. The entire hike will be after dark, so bring a headlamp. This time of year, you may need traction such as Micro Spikes. Dogs are welcome on this hike, but they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. If you join this hike, you are agreeing to this waiver.
Directions: We're meeting at the Florida Lot of Green Mountain/William Frederick Hayden Park, on the west side of W. Alameda Pkwy (across from W. Florida Dr.), about 1/4 mile north of the Alameda/Jewell intersection in Lakewood (do not go to the Utah Lot which is a little south of the Florida Lot). Click here for a Google map with directions.
