Cardiac Bypass Hike and totally Optional Potluck! (Intermediate/advanced)
If you are running late, please text the organizer at 916-834-2537 and we will wait for you for a few minutes extra or send a comment message to the event site.
Note: The hike is classified as ADVANCED because of the 45 minute extremely steep uphill climb for almost 1 mile which is equal to 65 flights of stairs. Please be considerate before you RSVP as we will not leave you behind if you are struggling, however that will have an affect on those members that came for the exercise but instead chose to help you. This hike is suitable for intermediate hikers that are accustomed to hiking UP HILL with a 1000 foot elevation gain. This hike is not suitable for beginners, do not make this your first hike.
Come join us to an excellent midweek hike that's about 5 miles long . The entire hike is awe-inspiring with beautiful scenery which includes Knickerbocker Falls cascading into the river below. We'll stop at the river to marvel at the view. This complete hike is over lush green mountains and hills, amid a wide variety of trees. After the river, we'll make a long uphill climb. You could experience breathing challenges and joint pain, so keep these conditions in mind. We end by 8:30.
This is a dog friendly event so bring them along. They'll be grateful you did.
Things to Bring: water, headlamp, a smile and a gentle attitude. If you would like to join afterward for the potluck bring something to share. For the environmentally conscious person, it would be suggested to bring a bowl and utensil to wash at home or you can use the extra products the organizer has on hand.
