This is a challenging hike for experienced CMC members and/or those seasoned participants desiring to learn more about fundamental map and compass skills. The challenging nature of this hike allows for an extended taste of winter hiking withou overdoing it. I expect we'll complete this hike between 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, based on group pace and overall conditioning. Bring the Ten Essentials and comfortable clothing layers for an extended winter hike.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
