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 faster 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.
To the Towers!

The evening version of this hike doesn't have a snack break.
If you need food, bring something that can be eaten quickly on the trail.
This is an up & back hike from Clay Ct. to the towers on Big Rock Ridge. This hike with its many ups & downs will get your blood moving! It’s on a fire road with just a little cover from trees.
Here's what Charles had to say about the hike:
Like a roller-coaster: up-up-up that became down-down-down that became up-up-up that became down-down-down for 11 miles with OMG views all over the place. I think there was a little flat spot somewhere in the middle.
