This will be an approx 5 mile hike, snacks are encouraged! This hike is open to all skill levels, and as always, our meet ups are a no-judgement zone. We are here to encourage as well as motivate each other along the trail. This means NO ONE is left behind! 

>>>>>Preparing for the hike: make sure to eat breakfast and hydrate, wear comfortable clothing, supportive tennis shoes or hiking boot with good tread, trekking poles as needed, at least 2-3L of water, and a first aid kit!

Please remember to dress appropriately! Winter boots, gloves and hats are highly recommended. Layers are the best way to dress so you don't overheat! If you need help putting together a winter hiking wardrobe, check out this great blog post from REI about dressing for colder weather! https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/layering-basics.html
