Tuesday Foothills hike - Easy

We will hike 4-5 miles in the Foothills area (less than 1000' elevation gain), either north or south, maybe a loop or up one of the trails depending on weather.  EASY pace, all skill levels are welcome.

It is now WINTER hiking weather, so I recommend gaiters, hiking boots, coats gloves and hats (dress in layers), and micro-spikes in your pack in case we run into icy patches on the trail.  This will be true from now until late March.

$1 fee at the entry station pay envelopes or to the gate guard.  There are restrooms in the parking lot.

Friendly dogs okay but must be on leash.

 

Check back the morning of hike before 8am in case ugly weather causes the hike to be canceled.  Please be at trailhead ready to hike on time, we will start walking at 9:05am.

    GORGEOUS snowy hike! Only about 2-5" deep and powder so no need for spikes. It was fun blazing a trail in the virgin snow, too.

    Robin, I think I'm getting a cold which I prefer to ignore. Since there isn't anyone on the waiting list, I'm not going to cancel now and wait to see how I feel in the morning. Is that okay with you?

    I will go to REI today for micro-spikes. If unable to get them, then I'll have to cancel. I wanted to signup while it was still possible.

      keep you eye on the weather reports, if we don't get snow you won't need them. Foothills are very dry currently.

    Fingers crossed, we might get some snow in the foothills tonight or tomorrow morning. I would recommend hiking poles and traction aids if we do.

    I would love to go on this one but I have class and I'm afraid we won't be back in time. :(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
