This hike will be a continuation of our Long Difficult Hike series. “If it’s not long it will be difficult; if it’s not difficult it will be long.” No respite.

For some hikers this can be a very challenging hike. As we do our ascent we will be mostly off-trail, hiking up very steep terrain, hopping over down trees, scrambling through and around boulders, and bushwhacking.

Oh, and probably time to bring your cool weather clothing.

Weather permitting, we may have the option to do a short celebratory “picnic” back at the trailhead. With this in mind consider bringing a snack, beverage, and folding chair. Alternatively, we also have the option to stop during the drive home.

Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including GPX file, prior to departure day.

Finally, please monitor your email and text messages that morning in case the trip needs to be rescheduled due to weather.
