  • We'll be going at a casual pace.
  • We will be hiking rain or shine though if conditions prove dangerous then we'll adjust (or cancel) the hike as needed. 

Also, the following gear is encouraged since this is a Winter hike:

  • Hiking poles
  • Traction Devices (e.g. Kahtoolas, Yaktrax, etc.)
    • Given the elevation and location we may forego these though please be prepared to carry them in case the conditions require it.
