Hiking is risky. Every year people are hurt and killed because they go beyond their abilities, get lost, or bring the wrong gear. I spend hours researching hikes and rely on various sources, but I can't vouch for their accuracy. I am not a professional guide, you are responsible for yourself. By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear you require.

      I am very sorry Chip, since I hadn't heard from you, I thought you had found someone already, I left already at 9 to do an errant before and my number is a land line, so I found your message when I came home. I am new and didn't know anyone in the group. Please forgive me.

    Hiked up here yesterday. It would have been tough without poles!!! Snowshoes might be overkill. Traction devices would be nice in some spots. Have fun!

  • Holly S.

    Just to check, microspikes are fine, right? I don't own snow shoes...
