This Meetup is past

20 people went


***THIS HIKE IS NOW ON SUNDAY, MARCH 28. I didn't realize there was a race on Antelope Island on Saturday.***

Cost: We will carpool onto the island because there is a $9 fee per car. So, please bring a few dollar bills as we will need to share this fee to get onto the island.

We'll meet: in the parking lot (on the left) before the fee booth to the Island. Look for a white mitsubishi galant or green jeep.

When: We'll LEAVE BY 10:10AM SHARP! :)

Distance: 7 miles ROUNDTRIP! Make sure you can do 7 miles with elevation change!

Difficulty:Moderate-Strenuous. This is a moderate climb to the peak. It's a 2050 feet elevation gain in 3.5 miles. This is twice as difficult as Big Water/Little Water Trail.

Pace: We will go at a brisk pace. If you are just starting out hiking, you probably should wait for this one.

Approximate Time: I anticipate this hike to take about 5-6 hours. But, it totally depends on our group. So, this is an estimate!

WATER! I am bringing at least 64 ounces for myself.
Layers... it might be chilly.


What will we do after? Of course, no hard hike can be done without a nice meal and beverages after with a great group of people! So, we will head to Maccool's Public House.
