California Los Angeles - 5 Peaks at 5 AM

Official Meetup: Cinco De Mayo 5 Peaks at 5 AM

This hike is led by GWHLA Ambassador and Captain #5AMasshole Mia Svenson, and GWHIE Ambassador Sarah Carter! Special giveaways will be handed out at this meetup! 

***Please sign the GWHLA Waiver before attending a meetup; it takes less than a minute, and once you’ve signed it once, you’re good to go for all future meetups! 

This is a RED HIKE due to distance, and elevation loss and gain. Please bring sunscreen, snacks, at least three liters of water, trekking poles and hiking boots. 

If you’re bringing your dog, please bring at least 1.5 oz of water per pound of your dogs body weight. (I bring 70 oz of water for my 50 lb dog and he always drinks it all). Please also bring shoes for your dog as I’m expecting it to be rather hot and want to avoid blistered paws. 

We’re going to hit five peaks, starting at 5 AM to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! (and I personally will be hitting up the closest Wahoo's to eat hella nachos afterwards, you're more than welcome to join me!)
