With the holidays, parties and other festivities going on, what better way to stay in shape than to go on a fun, workout hike?!

This hike will range between 7 to 9+ miles. Expected cumulative gains will easily exceed 2100+ feet.

UPDATE: Start time for tomorrow's hike has been pushed back to 8am (vs. 7:15am). We will begin promptly at 8am. :-)

Expected hiking time, with a couple of stops for picture taking, snacks & water breaks is anywhere between 3.0 to 4.0 hours, depending on the group.

Please bring water (chilled or with ice) for drinking, hat and sun glasses for sun protection and snacks for yourself or to share among the group. Good hiking shoes or "grippy" shoes are essential and hiking poles for the many STEEP uphills and downhill sections may come in handy.

BTW ~ If you have a smartphone, apps such as MapMyHike or RunKeeper may come in handy to track the path we take during the hike. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to e-mail me and I will be happy to provide further details regarding this hike.

Hope to see you there!


P.S. - Pictures will be taken!
