THIS IS AN ADVANCED HIKE. BEFORE SIGNING UP EVALUATE YOUR ABILITY TO DO THIS HIKE.
There is a $2 suggested donation for this event to cover the cost of the meetup site.
THIS IS A MEMBER ONLY HIKE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HIKE WITH A FRIEND WHO IS NOT A MEMBER PLEASE HAVE THEM JOIN THE GROUP.
We will meet at the MT. Beacon parking lot and shuttle some cars to the Breakneck Ridge parking area. At the end of the hike we will end up at Beacon and will shuttle people back to Breakneck. If you choose to go to breakneck and meet the group there is no guarantee there will be room in a car to get you back to your car after the hike.
WE WILL LEAVE THE MT. BEACON PARKING LOT AT 9:15 SHARP. If you need extra time to get ready please arrive early so that you don't keep the group waiting.
MINIMUM RECOMMENDED GEAR:
· Backpack with raincoat/windbreaker, base layers (synthetic - no cotton)
· Hiking Poles
· Microspikes (there may be snow or ice on the ground)
· Headlamp (you never know)
· Water (at least 2-3 liters)
· Snack and lunch
The hike should be about 7+ miles and should take us 4-5.5 hours to complete. There will be an option to go out for an after hike snack or drink.
We will hike up breakneck following the White path all the way to the MT. Beacon fire tower. Once at the tower we will follow the RED path all the way down to the cars.
FOR THOSE THAT ONLY WANT DO BREAKNECK YOU CAN MEET US AT THE BREAKNECK PARKING AREA AND CHOOSE TO GO UP THE WHITE TRAIL AND OUT ON THE "TRADITOINAL" RED TRAIL DOWN TO 9D.
BAD WEATHER WILL CANCEL THIS HIKE. MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL BEFORE HEADING OUT IN THE MORNING.
