Central Valley - Wind Wolves Preserve

Hello, ladies! Our March meet-up will be at Wind Wolves. I know, I know... we've done this before. But this is usually when the park is at its greenest and prettiest, so here's hoping for a third year in a row! 

This is an approximately 8 mile hike/~1,000 ft elevation gain

According to the GWH Trail Rating System, this is a YELLOW hike:

Moderate hike, well-signed, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000ft., low altitude. Novice hikers welcome!

Due to this area's popularity, this will likely be a FREE but ticketed event. This means everyone will need to register for ONE TICKET PER HIKER. You can reserve multiple tickets to bring a friend or two, it will cap at 3 tickets/girls though. Leave the fellas and kiddos at home for this meetup. Carpooling is strongly encouraged due to the location.

There will be giveaways from our sponsors before the hike!

If you do not think you're ready for this hike, it is a month out which gives you plenty of time to WORK UP to this! You are always welcome to visit Wind Wolves separately from GWH and try one of their many, shorter hikes. Feel free to reach out to the main group page if you have any questions... Our members know the trails the best and can always give you advice on whether or not to reserve tickets for this one. Novice hikers are welcome as long as you research the trail beforehand. Please plan accordingly.

Please give yourself the WHOLE morning and most of the afternoon for this hike. We will be a large group and large groups move a little slower than normal. Take advantage of the extended time on the mountain to network with other members and get to know them... you never know who may become your next trail buddy! Even though this event is scheduled to end at 1pm, depending on how fast we move.. the ending time may be a little earlier or later on in the day.

1) Make sure you have the GWH Liability Waiver signed and on file!
