This is a conditioning hike, which means the emphasis is on cardio. We will be going at a moderately strenuous pace to tick off between 4-6 miles with generally more than 1500' of elevation gain in two hours. And yes, this will be a night hike, as in: it will get dark soon after we start.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As usual, we'll start hiking at exactly 5:45pm, so plan accordingly. If you're running late, pick up the pace (for even more cardio!) and you should be able to catch up to the group---if the coyotes, mountain lions, and/or rattlesnakes don't get you first.
The other usual conditions apply: bring plenty of water, a flashlight/headlamp (or two) along with a layer (or two) because the temps will fluctuate. As always, you're also responsible for your own safety and behavior.
Happy, well-conditioned trail pups are also welcome (i.e. dogs), but make sure they have water & snacks, too. Lurkers are welcome, but show up early; if everyone that's signed up shows up before the start time, we'll hit the trail.
