If registration is closed but you see space, please feel free to reach out to me.

To join this outing, it's important to have successfully completed hikes of roughly similar elevation, pace, and mileage in the last several months. If your Mountaineers history doesn't reflect hikes of this type, or if you're new to the Mountaineers, I may reach out for more information.

This is a stay-together group. Our moderate pace ranges between 1.8 and 2.2 mph, with adjustments made for terrain. Please note, this isn't a beginner hike. Seasoned hikers accustomed to a faster pace (2.3 to 3+ mph) may want to consider this a zone 2 recovery hike. For those seeking a more challenging experience, may I suggest bringing an extra 2-4 liters of water?

Remember, we stick together and support each other on this hike. Let's make the most of it by embracing the adventure and getting to know each other better. Arrive on time, prepared, and ready to enjoy the journey!

If the hike registration is closed but you see spaces are available, reach out to me. I can add you manually.
