This hike was originally posted for the Conditioning Hiking Series and has been switched to open to all members. I am waiting to open registration depending on if there is a change in the governor's advice between now and then. Most likely this trip will be delayed or cancelled.

This hike is in between the Norse Peak and Clearwater Wilderness areas. It is easy to get to, right off Hwy 410.
