This hike is for women only. We ask that due to the distance and elevation gain that only adults attend.

Dogs are welcome so long and they're well behaved and friendly. This trail does allow for off leash dogs.

Please be sure to bring plenty of water and calories. I will bring a water filter and first aid kit.
