GWH Trail Rating - This a YELLOW hike - Moderate hike, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000ft. We will keep a moderate pace of around 2 mph.

We will hike as a group, and stop at the peak for photos and a snack break. Some scrambling is required, so those who do not want to go all the way to the peak are welcome to wait at the bottom of the “stairs.” While dogs are allowed on this trail, we ask that you please leave your pets at home for this one!

**As with all GWH events, you MUST have a signed Liability Waiver on file prior to attending. It takes 60 seconds to complete and one waiver clears you for all meetups!** Link to waiver: http://bit.ly/GWHLiabilityWaiver

What To Bring: Please bring sunscreen and plenty of water! 2L minimum is required. Even though we’re starting early, it does get hot. We will take a short break at the top for photos, so feel free to bring along a snack of your choice as well.
