California San Diego - Laguna Mountain Ridge via the PCT

This Hike is led by GWHSD Ambassador Sierra Jean Vickers.

I tend to be a faster-paced hiker, and this is also a long hike! So please consider your fitness level before signing up for this hike. I am happy to take breaks, but don't want to wait around a lot. I am training for the Trailblaze Challenge, so I'm trying to challenge myself, while I lead hikes, and I would love to have you come along to challenge yourself too!

If you are a registered member and have your punch card, don’t forget to bring it so I can initial it! 
If you’re not a registered member, you’re more than welcome to attend anyway! You can find out more about how to become one and get a punch card of your own here: 
I will not be handing out punch cards at this event. They’re available through purchase of a New Member Kit only.
