Hey ladies! This is one of my favorite peaks, so I'm so excited to hike it with you ladies! Weather will be a little bit tricky with snowfall, so I will update on this event page if anything changes or if any technical gear is needed. This hike will be ladies only, but adventure pups are welcome if they are conditioned and you pack extra food or water for them. I will likely be bringing my adventure pup as well. We will be meeting at 7:00 am but we will leave PROMPTLY at 7:15 am. Can't wait to hike with you all!

We will meet at the trailhead in Crystal Lake Campground. An adventure pass is required to park here, so please plan accordingly as stores won't be open before the hike starts. 

RED: Strenuous hike, possible unmarked trail, elevation gain of 2,500+, altitude up to 9,500ft. Experienced hikers welcome, semi-experienced welcome if they plan on training beforehand!

List of similar hike recommendations will be posted before day of hike, personal trail map REQUIRED, trail map & water check at trailhead before we begin, we may split up based on pace and you must be comfortable navigating solo between rest breaks. Small groups only.
