***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***


- 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.

- Since we won't be leaving anyone behind, we will be taking breaks when they are needed, for as long as they are needed. Unfortunately there is no way to predetermine this. If you plan to leave the group or are uncomfortable waiting for or hiking at the pace of other hikers please do not attend. 

- Water, lunch/snacks, warm and waterproof layers, and appropriate footwear are required. Possible extras to pack: microspikes, hand warmers, or a hot beverage to drink during/after the hike if it's really cold.

Any updates will be posted on the event thread, and I'll update the event description if anything changes. Can't wait to hike with you all!
