The 100 Year Hike is a Special Event commemorating the very first outing by the Mountaineers. On February 17, 1907, forty-eight (48) mountaineers and guests treked to Fort Lawton (now Discovery Park) where they greeted the post's commander, walked through the woods to the West Point Lighthouse, took a group photo, ate lunch and then returned at low tide along the beach.
