Details

NOTE: We've rescheduled this hike due to the hazardous weather outlook for July 20. New date is August 10th, and rsvps will open 2 weeks before.

Hey all! For this hike we’ll be checking out Little Schloss. From HikingUpward: “Only 1.7 miles east of the more popular Big Schloss, the Little Schloss overlook is nearly all but forgotten. The view from Little Schloss is spectacular, however the rock scramble to to the summit does require some skill. But this hike isn't just about the summit, 0.3 past the overlook there are several beautiful vistas on the trail, as well as a clearing with mature spruce. Little Stoney Creek is also a favorite with backpackers, and has many camping sites along its banks.”

Afterwards we’ll head to Woodstock Brewing Company for a drink and a bite to eat.

Remember to bring water, whatever food/snacks you need to cover 5 miles, and appropriate clothing and shoes/boots for hiking.
