  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 13.6 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 6,200 ft

Meet at the bottom of the road at gate to Walker Trailhead at 0700.

We will start our 3-peat at 0705. FYI: As the Route indicates one round is 2-miles with 2000 feet of elevation up total for one round 4-miles . Hence the 3-peat is 12 miles total with 6,000 feet of elevation.  We added going to the other look-out once and to the trailhead from the gate and back gave us 13.6 miles &  6200 feet in elevation. 

This hike is for endurance, conditioning, training, both physical and mental as well as to get outside.  We will carry 25-35#+ packs the first round and then drop the weight for the last 2 rounds to whatever is comfortable. Depending on trail conditions (snow or ice) the time will be 6-7 hours. A good way to release the year of 2017! Build strength, mental endurance, and bath in the forest. 

If weather is unbearable we may adjust number of repeats. 

Please bring 10-essentials, warm layers, microspikes if weather/trail conditions warrant, plenty of water and food to have in your pack as going back to the car is optional...usually people don't return for their next round when returning to their car.
