    Without Sheryl the group seemed very disorganized and not sure where to go.....Sherly is certainly a leader and with her on the mountain with you, you feel safe and comfortable. This was not the typical experience with this group and any first timers should try it again.

    There is only ONE parking lot at the pass of "Guardsman Pass". You can't get lost unless you park somewhere not on Guardsman Pass. The pass is the top. It's before you go down the other side regardless of which way you are going.

    I just came across this today. I have never been to any of these events. Do I need to sign up for membership, or can I come on the hike without it? I would like to check it out.

    All of our Saturday hikes are very similar in many ways. We always finish before 12 noon, these are all easy to moderate hikes as far as elevation gain goes. I always have options for beginners. If you'll come at 7:45 am, 15 minutes before we leave, you'll learn a lot at our weekly orientation and can get any questions and concerns answered. I hope this helps. We will hopefully see you soon.

    Sheryl, I'm not familiar with this hike - can you give me some details on the length/elevation gain, difficulty level, etc. Also what the estimated completion time would be? Thx

    We will be in the Park City Ski Resort area. If you get a chance, contact them and see if dogs are allowed at the top of Guardsman and in the PC ski resort area. I'm not sure. Dogs are not allowed in Big Cottonwood Canyon area due to the water shed restrictions.

    Not sure I'll be in town yet but have been wanting to get up there with my Golden. Should be cooler at that elevation and lakes for him to swim in. Would this be a dog friendly hike Sheryl?
