For those who are new to this event: this is an Advanced+ level HIKE.

This hike will range between 7 to 9+ miles. Expected cumulative gains will easily exceed 1900+ feet.

Start time for the hike is 7:30am, sharp! 7:31am catches our back side. ;-)~

Pace is moderate to fairly brisk, depending on the group. Expected hiking time with a couple of stops for picture taking, snacks & water breaks is anywhere between 3.5 to 4.5 hours.

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 usually come in handy.

BTW ~ Smartphone apps such as MapMyHike, RunKeeper or other tracking apps are pretty helpful. These apps track the route we take, essentially creating breadcrumbs in case anyone needs to turn around during the hike.

Please feel free to e-mail me and I will be happy to provide further details if you have any questions.

Hope to see you there!


P.S. - Pictures will be taken!
