NEW TIME--The next few weeks we will be meeting at 4:30 PM. We meet at the stairs in parking lot #2, above the Merry-Go-Round. This is a strenuous hike. We do many steep, slippery trails, some rock scrambling. The hikes are about 2 hours long and about 4 miles, and those miles include many steep ascents. We move at a fairly rapid pace. but pause occasionally for to enjoy the views, smell the flowers, take pictures of the amazing views, etc. You must wear good hiking shoes with lug soles and bring water. Definitely not for beginners; advanced moderate and advanced hikers only. Please remember you must be able to keep pace with the leader. If you are not able to keep up, you will be directed back to the parking lot, or shown an easier path to take.
