TRAIL RATING: This is a red hike on the GWH scale – It is over 7 miles, and has unmarked trails, may not have signage and has elevation gain of over 2,000 feet.
RED HIKE NOTES: 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
A NOTE ABOUT PACE: Every girl must feel comfortable with a little space between us depending on pace. Normally the group will split into two groups depending on size- one slightly faster and one slightly slower. I WILL ALWAYS SWEEP AND WILL NEVER LEAVE ANYONE BEHIND. My rule is the faster paced group may go ahead- but you MUST be willing to be patient, supportive, and considerate of slower hikers. This means coming prepared, being willing to take breaks and wait at trail junctions/water crossings/etc. This also means every single girl attending must be prepared with proper gear and must read up on the event so you feel comfortable and importantly MUST CARRY 3 L WATER AND A TRAIL MAP.
