Meet at 6 PM at Sky Country Trailhead.

Instead of the Mountaineer's route for Anti-Aircraft Peak, we will be using the WTA route. This route is shorter and slightly more level which should make it a great hike to end the day.

The park closes at dusk though seeing as dusk will be at 9:49 PM for the hike we should be able to finish the hike with time to spare.

Prior to signing up for this hike, please take into account the follow:

  • Adults only (≥18 yrs old)
  • Bring illumination. Even though we'll get out before dusk, it's likely that it may be dark in the forest.
