Ever want to take a different route than the usual to Poo Poo Point? Well, here's an opportunity to experience a slightly different set of trails. We'll be starting from the High Point Way trailhead and we'll make our way to Poo Poo Point. We'll take the Railroad Grade one way and the High School Trail the other which will give us a nice loop.

Prior to signing up for this hike, please take into account the following:

  • Adults only (≥18 yrs old).
  • 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.)
    • We may not require traction devices depending on the weather. This will be re-examined as we get closer to the hike.
