Hey Guys! How’s everyone’s endurance, stamina, and excitement for exploration?!? This San Marcos Peak (aka Cerro de las Posas) to Double Peak Hike will test all that! I have not done this hike before so it will be a surprise for me too. It is supposed to have some of the most amazing views of the lake, rolling hills and the surrounding city. It will have inclines and about 8 miles of good, fun exercise!! Consider this as a Day Camp Exploration Trip with guidelines to keep us safe… wear masks, observe 6 ft apart. After the hike, we can get our lunch somewhere, bring it to a park, or head to the Lodge …an exclusive area by Lake San Marcos. We can decide as a group and stay together or go on our merry way!
There are 2 options for this hike and you can decide yours:
(1) If you do not want to hike all the way to Double Peak, just do San Marcos Peak
(2) Carry on with me to Double Peak.
You will be hungry, so bring snacks for along the way. I recommend to:
-Drink a few gulps of water or other liquids every 30-45 minutes,
-Have a bit of your protein bar, maybe a handful of nuts or a citrus fruit every hour…
