PLEASE READ BEFORE ATTENDING!
Your Own Responsibility: This is mandatory for all activities! Please do not come if you know or think this hike or activity is above your abilities, because the only time we turn around is when someone is hurt, Always bring a map, enough water and food to last all day... Have the right gear at all times for cold or hot weather and always carry a flashlight since our group has tendency to hike late in the afternoon and sometimes well into the night hours.. A whistle is handy to have as well..
Disclaimer: The duration of the hike will always depend on the slowest member of the group. 1 mile/hr means 11 hrs for a 11 miles hike.... which mathematically speaking means... We could be getting out in the dark...! And If you are in a hurry to be somewhere! Please do not come because you will always be disappointed..! Guaranteed!
