This event is capped at 20 for COVID safety. Sign up only if you are committed to attending. Dropping off at the last minute, or not showing up, is unfair to those on the waitlist. I will mark anyone who drops off the morning of the hike without an excuse as a no-show.
NOTE: You should be able to follow a map, understand possible bailouts, and must be realistic in your assessment of your own abilities and be prepared to hike alone.
NOTE: You are responsible for bringing appropriate gear, supplies, clothing, first aid, and lights. You should review topographic maps and trail features carefully; understanding topography of any hike is key to your knowing where you are, where you’re going, and how to get back. See suggestions for GEAR on the “About” page for additional gear ideas.
