What we're about

This group is for anyone who has experience and is interested in hiking, backpacking, kayaking and possibly rock climbing. Mostly we will be hiking. I started this group so that I can continue my passion for getting out there and exploring the great outdoors.

Location visible to members

This is a major hike - approx 25 miles and a serious elevation gain over 8000 feet. There are STEEP ascents and descents. It will be WAY colder up top - esp if it is windy.
START TIME 5 or 5:30 AM. (we may decide to go earlier depending on weather)

We will dropping car(s) at the beginning middle and end points.
YOU must agree to be part of the shuttle to join this hike.

WE WILL NOT STOP to wait for people to catch up on this hike or we will not finish in a reasonable time.
If you cannot be at the halfway point by 2:30 pm you will not finish and should stop.

YOU MUST HAVE A MAP WITH YOU or have done this hike before and know the trail.
If you are sick in any way or recently sick- or have not trained - this is NOT the hike for you.
If you do not like to be on the trail for 14-16 hours straight - this is NOT the hike for you.
There are some awesome views - there are some challenging places where climbing/scrambling is involved. There is no bail out.

Due to the nature of this hike ....IF THE WEATHER IS LOOKING NOT TOO GOOD - WE MAY DECIDE TO DO THE HIKE SATURDAY OR MONDAY - IT MAYBE A GAMETIME DECISION. So plan accordingly.
You are solely responsible for yourself - so make sure you have a map/know the route. Try alltrails and/or buy the catskills maps at REI.If you become injured - help is a long way off so you'll need to buckle in and wait. Cell service is less than spotty.

Good foot wear -
Food/Snacks in pack - You'll need to eat as you go or you wont get done.
Water - Gatorade etc.
HEADLAMP REQUIRED.
Change of socks/shirt in pack recommended.
Rain Gear - You'll be happy you have it if it rains.
Sunblock if sunny.
You may want gloves - you will put your hands on a fair amount of rock.

Friday Night at the Hikes - Crows Nest 6-8 mile

Location visible to members

Join us for a Friday evening hike around the Crows Nest and French Creek Area. We will hike between 6 and 7 miles roughly - at a brisk pace but not running. We want to end before dark - or if we are gonna go out after - end early enough to get to the bar before it closes.

We will pause occasionally for the random picture or to re group.

This is a fairly flat hike.
This is a regular hike - sometimes I may decide to route us past Bethesda cemetery and up the Buzzards trail or Through Hopewell furnace. I like keeping things somewhat fresh.

Rain cancels. I like dogs but not on my hikes.
