This is a special event hike. It is not a normal Wanderer hike and many people report this hike to be the hardest hike in the area. We will do it in the future as a regular Wanderer event but this particular hike is special. As a result, I am requesting that only experienced Wanderers RSVP for this hike. Yannick (one of our fastest Wanderers) has offered to lead a group of experienced and very fit Wanderers up the famous Chicken Shack hike. This will be harder and FASTER than our normal hikes and for a select few that can keep up with Yannick.
