Tues Night Snowshoe Hike No. 2
This is a Snowshoe Hike Series. The following is generic information about our snowshoe hikes: 1. Please meet on time or contact us so we know you are coming 2. Dress in Layers with options for really cold if needed. 3. Bring water and snacks 4. Stay in groups and communicate with those in your group. 5. Winter Hiking is the best! I hope you like it too. I have extra snow shoes. If you want to borrow a pair, request it in the comments. Via the comments I will post if all my supply is spoken for. Many places that sell snowshoes will rent them too. Some (if not most) will apply the cost of the rental to the purchase if you buy them. Check before and trust them (not me). Specific Hike Detail: Let's hike Desolation Trail up Millcreek Canyon. More Info will be added soon! We should finish before 9pm which will get us back to the park and ride before 9:30pm. Feel free to make suggestions or offer to lead a hike on a particular hike to the adult play ground or to one or more of the lakes or what ever you think would be great. If you want to participate in an after party, please make a comment or message me. I think it would be a good idea to create a separate event we can call the after party. This is not my thing, so I will wait for someone else to take the lead on that (see below). Help Wanted! The help I think we need is: 1. Participation: I can post and participate. I can even lead us on trails. However, I don't know the trails like many of you. I can do my best to lead to a particular area, however, it may not be perfect. I know I can keep a group safe and get them back to the cars. However, maybe some of you can help guild us so we hike where we intend? 2. After Hike Social: Many groups like to meet after and socialize. This is not my specialty. If you are interested in meeting up after, you can post a comment to invite others or you can create a separate event. If you want to post a separate event but you're not an organizer, let me know know and we can either make you an organizer or I can post it for you. 3. It would be great if some of you would become organizers and help lead some of these hikes. I only know so many hikes (and they are limited too). I mostly followed the group when it came to winter hikes. I would love to follow you. I am willing to help in any way!

What we're about

Public Group

WELCOME!
The Wasatch Hiking and Outdoors Meetup is a group of people that love to hike with others! We feature hikes for all skill levels, road trips, camping, and social gatherings. We have events throughout the Wasatch Front, including Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, & Utah counties and further! We even hike at night!

KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Our Organizers are NOT tour guides, we are NOT rangers. Going out with us is the same as going out with a few friends. Expect the same risks, and PLEASE take the same precautions. As Organizers, we will do our best to give accurate descriptions of the hikes we post. If you are a beginning hiker, a hike's elevation and distance may not mean much to you. Likewise, difficulty ratings are subjective, and a hike that is Easy for one person, may be Moderate to another. Err on the side of caution. You're much better off going on a hike that's too easy for you than a hike that's too hard or too dangerous for you. As you go on more hikes with us, you'll become more familiar with our ratings and our descriptions, and you'll learn more about your own limits. Ultimately, it's up to you to keep yourself SAFE out there. You are an adult. Hike within your abilities.

DUES/FEES
