    It was a very nice hike with warm sunny weather and we saw about 25 different wildflowers, including Poppies, Butter Cups, Red Maids, Lupines, Shooting Stars, Milk Maids and at the end of the hike we saw Giant Trillums and Pipevines.

    I just realized this is Sierra Singles. Should I assume everyone joining is single and this is a bit different than the regular Sierra group?

      Hi Teresa, The Sierra Singles is aim for single adults 21 years and older. However, everyone is welcome to our events and we don't check on people's martial status.

      Hi Ilana, Sorry I forgot to include the mileage and elevation gain. The hike is 8-9 miles with about 1300 feet elevation gain.
