4th Training Hike!

  • Mar 21, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Training Hike #4 is rugged and beautiful (like most of the people in the group ;-)) with camping on Friday and Saturday nights at a local campground with hot showers. We will do a figure 8 loop through the 2 most rugged areas around, 3 Ridges on one side of the Tye River and The Priest on the other and will finish off at another hidden gem so you are amply rewarded for your efforts! Campground location is here:

with more details to follow, including a Half Presi training hike option, but wanted to get this one posted so you can plan for it!

The Full Training hike will be about 24 miles and 8500' elevation gain.

For the Half Presi Training Hike (approx. 14 miles and 4500' elevation gain), we will start up the AT from Hwy 56 (Crabtree Falls Hwy) to The Priest Mtn over to Spy Rock (if time allows), backtrack to Forest Road 263, and then down Crabtree Falls trail to our campsite. (This will involve some car shuttles.) Bring traction clips for your boots in case of snowy/icy trails.

Please note the Great Range Traverse across the High Peaks of the Adirondacks is now posted for Memorial Day Weekend, so get ready for some of the best hikes in the East by participating in our Training Hike Series.  This event is cross-posted with the Washington Backpackers Meetup Group.
