***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***

To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing electrolytes, snacks, at least 2L of water, and your 10 essentials. ***A head lamp is a MUST since we will be starting in the dark***

This hike is open experienced hikers. 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!
