HIKE WALKTHROUGH: This hike begins with a short but moderately steep incline to warm up and then some rolling hills. After the 1/2 way point, we will have some moderate inclines until we reach the infamous “switchbacks” which entails a moderately steep/rocky incline for about .5 miles which we will take at a very slow/moderate pace. After another short break, we will head down the fire road to where our vehicles are parked.
PARKING and FACILITIES: There are public bathrooms at our 1/2 way point and cell phone reception. Because there is always the danger of cars being vandalized, please do not leave any valuables in view in your vehicle.
REQUIRED: Water, at least one liter of water or two 16/20oz bottles.
RECOMMENDED: Hiking pokes, a hat, a light snack and comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes or sandles)
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Yes, but must be kept on a leash. You must clean up after your pet and carry water and a container for it drink from.
