This is a scenic slow hike. Take some photos, enjoy the outdoors and enjoy the company of your fellow hikers. Our goal is to get to the destination safely with smiles, stories, and lots of photos. No rush, no race, no pressure, no drama, and hope for no injury. Hike at your own pace. We dont do a neck to neck military style hiking. I need my space, peace, and quite. Enjoy the breeze, colors, mushroom, etc. Bring your snacks, lunch, water, chocolate, maps, emergency kit, rain gear, and other essentials.
We usually go to a group lunch/dinner after hike. So If you don't want to join us, pls don't carpool with anyone and make sure your vehicle is parked at destination trail head.

This is a 1 way Hike route.

Just FYI. Sign up fees and Shuttle fee covers the shuttle and event preps like scouting parking lots to organize these types of events. Trust me, organizing events is a lot of time, money and effort to put together.
