Details

This is a 23-mile loop hike around the lower portion of Blue Marsh Lake. There are several steep climbs and the distance and pace make this a not-at-all-for-beginner hike and therefore hikers will be screened accordingly. Bring at least 2+liters of water plus lunch and plenty of snacks to stay fueled. Steady rain cancels and the Meetup will be updated accordingly.

Please note that the attendee list will be limited to allow for a more enjoyable group hike over this distance. As this is a hike around a lake there are no bailout points and the group will need to stay together the entire time. Please do not RSVP unless you are fully intending to participate with the group for the entire loop hike and keep your RSVP updated if your plans change to allow for hikers on the wait-list to attend.
