I’m doing a hike this day. I want to keep the hike at a good pace around 1.5 miles an hour for around 4 to 5 miles. You will be hiking up a mountain with quick elevation, but at the top what a sight. This is not an easy hike, meaning it is not gravel paths and walking through a nice park; it’s the outdoors. It is nothing you can’t handle, although it is not a walk in the park. You will be going up a mountain. So you may use your hands and feet to get up there but there is not too much of that, mostly it is single track. This will be at a brisk pace but not anything most fit people can’t handle. Total time about 4 hours with few rests. We will take rests as needed and a lunch or snack at the halfway point.
I don’t have a sweeper for the hike so you must keep up.
You will need lots of water at least 2 liters, good shoes, and a snack if you want. If it is hot, lots of water! If it is looks like light rain the hike is on.
