***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 snacks, 3L 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!

Please note: I did this hike in December. The trail was very wet and muddy. Be sure to wear waterproof shoes or boots and bring an extra pair of socks and shoes for your return drive home.
