What to Bring:
Please bring a lot of water, sunscreen, snacks/lunch & extra layers as this is a peak and can be windy and cold at the top. This is a slightly steep hike, with slippery rock at the top that will take us to Donner Peak. We will be hiking at the pace of the slowest hiker. This will ensure that we do not get separated or lost on the trail. Please don’t hesitate to ask any hiking related questions!

This will be a members only event. In order to attend an official meetup, you MUST have a signed Liability Waiver on file. Please see the Group Rules for details/link to sign. http://bit.ly/GWHLiabilityWaiver This waiver clears you for all meetups! For official meetups we kindly ask that only ladies attend.
