This will be a custom route to Anti-Aircraft Peak and Million Dollar View. This route is shorter than the typical route.

The park closes at dusk though seeing as dusk will be at 8:54 PM for the hike we should be able to finish the hike with a little time to spare.

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

  • 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.
  • We'll be going at a casual pace.
