This is a hike in celebration of our older members and friends who are still doing some awesome hiking!
Who can go: Fit hikers over 55 years of age. You must be able to complete 15 miles in about 8.5 hours, including breaks. A headlamp is mandatory equipment!
After leaving one or more vehicles at McNally's in Fairview, we will meet at the end of Burlando Road at 7:45 am for a one-way hike of the 14.5 mile Whiskey Flat trail. The trail ends at the Fairview footbridge next to McNally's. After the hike we will drive back to Kernville, retrieve the other vehicles, and have dinner somewhere in Kernville (since McNally's is closing on November 9th for the season).
We will develop carpooling arrangements as we get closer to the date.
Unsuitable weather will cancel or postpone this hike.
