Heart 'n Lunger Hike - Peaks 2&3

Heart 'n Lunger Hike
The Heart 'n Lunger hikes will be every Tuesday evening May - September. We have done them every year since 2007. H 'n L hikes, by our definition, gain at least 1500' of elevation. Many of them will offer 2x that elevation gain for the uber-fit among us. Distance and time: 3-4 miles in 3-3.5 hours. At the other end of the fitness spectrum, the less fit in the group have good naturedly dubbed their sub-group the 'Gaspers 'n Wheezers'. Everyone is welcome these hikes are mix with 'out and back' and " Loop"

WHEN/WHERE:

Let's Meet at 6pm at Canyon rd parking. We will start to hike by 6:15.

Directions: From Seward Hwy go uphill on DeArmoun. Cross Hillside Dr to Upper DeArmoun at the only traffic light on the Hillside. Go 1 mile and then go right at the fork to Canyon Rd. Go up Canyon for nearly 2 miles to reach the trailhead (road may get a bit rough for cars near the end).  Do not park past the gate if you do not have high road clearance.

Details: 
Hike Peak 2 (3658 ft) and Peak 3 (3996 ft) from Rabbit Creek side.

It is about 4 miles and plan to be out for 3 hours.  We will hike up to the Peak 2 (behind Flattop) from the Canyon Rd and continue on to Peak 3, then back to the trailhead straight down from Peak 3. This is not difficult trail but from Peak 2 to Peak 3 can be difficult for some people. It requires ridge walking and some non-technical rock scrambling if you want to go all the way to the top of Peak 3.

BRING: 
-- Ski/ trekking poles (optional but very helpful on the steeps and on rocky or muddy areas) 
-- Wind &/or rain shell and pants 
-- Dress in non-cotton layers so you can shed or add clothes as temps change 
-- Water & trail snacks

DOGS:

OK

COST: 
There is no parking fee at this location, but parking is limited and you can get a $200 ticket for parking in the wrong place. Please arrange carpools if you can.
