To complete this hike I highly recommend bringing electrolytes, snacks, at least 2 L of water, and your 10 essentials!


This hike is open to hikers of all skill levels. We’ll be hiking as a group, and nobody will be left behind or forgotten.

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and I'll update the event description if anything changes!
