  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,000 ft

Everett Station Park & Ride (33rd and Smith Streets), 6AM

Pace will be moderate (2 miles per hour plus 1 hour per thousand feet of elevation is a good rule of thumb). Bring poles, traction devices (just in case), sunscreen and sunglasses (nothing wrong with optimism), and be prepared for wintry conditions. We will stop at the Train Wreck in Burlington on the way home. Riders should bring cash to help with expenses of driving. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
