A fast and fun hike along the PCT. We will start at the Meany Lodge, and hike up to the PCT. Some minor off trail travel and route finding will be required to get from the Lodge to the PCT. 

We will travel east along the PCT until we feel like turning around! Aiming for about 14 miles round trip, 2200 ft gain. We'll be travelling fast, but will take time for pictures and snacks. 

Looking forward to a fun day rambling in the mountains, and will finish it off with an excellent dinner  and other evening activities at Meany Lodge. Register for the Adventure Wellness Weekend here:
