I have something going on Wednesday so I am going on this classic lighter hike on Thursday. Yes it is a LONG DRIVE to Mazama for a lighter hike but the views from this peak plus the view from the drive itself are absolutely stunning. This 4 mile 1600 foot elevation hike has a view that is unbelievable. We may hit another light hike if people are okay with it in Thunder Knob. Except a long drive but bring your camera for amazing scenery.
Rating 2: This hike is up to 10 miles if it is under 1000 feet of gain (Cherry Creek Falls). The hike will also be between 1000 and 2000 feet of elevation gain provided it is under 7 miles. These hikes will have little or no scrambling. An example of these types of hikes would be Little Si, Rattlesnake Ledge, Poo Poo Point via Chirico, Cedar Butte, and Lake Twentytwo. If the trail has some difficulties or scrambles such as Stegosaurus Butte, we will up it a half grade to a 2+. Snowshoe trip will count for 1 grade up as well. Like a Grade 1 anyone can sign up for these hikes.
Attendance will be taken at every event and like most other major groups we will have a two no-shows and you are out of the group policy. You will be responsible for your own safety. Every Organizer and Event Planners are volunteers and are not professional guides.
