    Thanks Kyong! Great hike, but not for the faint of heart or weak in the leg! The bushwacking paid off as it was a more direct route back to the trailhead and we made it there before dark!

    Unfortunately no, they are just water resistant. Maybe I'll get the right gear and catch up with y'all next time. Just moved here within the last month and a half

    James, it is going to be cold, is your hiking boots waterproof. Snowboots are not good for climbing.

    Will snowboots be necessary or will regular hiking boots be ok?

    I may want to descend from Round Top down Ptarmigan Valley instead of hiking back to Skyline. If so, I'll leave a car there. Others welcome to join me. The distance is similar.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
