We will be moving at a moderate pace as usual, however I do plan on taking significant breaks at the viewpoints and peaks. Please keep this in mind.

We will meet at Roaring Brook Trailhead, hop in as few cars as possible, and then shuttle 2 minutes south to Giant Mountain Primary Trailhead to begin hiking.

Waiver:

If you join this event you are responsible for yourself in all regards; including but not limited to the following. You must be prepared to navigate yourself to your objectives and back to your vehicle. Which means being familiar with the route prior to arrival, and bringing whatever navigation aids necessary. You must know the mileage / elevation gain / terrain / planned pace, and be familiar with your ability to traverse them, and what gear is recommended for yourself given the conditions. Unless the meetup is labeled as "Beginner", it is your responsibility to gauge your ability to keep up with the group and get to the vehicles within a time-frame as to not cause alarm; this may mean that you may not meet all of your objectives. Your first objective is always to get back to the vehicles safely, and let the rest of the group get on with their trip, so keep track of the time, turn around if you need to, and try to let people know if you think you might disappear. There will be no gear-check, but extra food, extra water, rain layers, headlamp, lighter, compass, and whistle, should be things that you are very rarely without. Most people are unfamiliar with how quickly rain on a previously 90 degree day can become a survival situation, so it warrants saying that, if there is any chance of rain, you need raingear.
