WOMEN'S ANNUAL SUMMER SOLSTICE HIKE


The BEST way to celebrate the longest day of the year!

Explore, Connect, Grow. Let’s get out and enjoy the mountains on the longest day of the year!

Meet at the trailhead (see link below) at 6:00pm and we will spend the longest day of the year hiking. This is a free event to help women who love to hike connect with one another. Sorry guys...you'll have to stay home for this one.

This event is not guided and everyone is expected to hike at their own risk. Please bring the essentials for a night hike: warm layers, water, and a headlamp. Everyone who is coming will need to sign a waiver (please bring a pen)....oh the joys of paperwork! To ensure everyone is comfortable coming, we will hike at our own pace and I'll bring up the rear. The speedy people can be speedy and those who want to take their time are MORE than welcome! ​

The trail is a GRUNT at 7.9km round trip and 800m elevation gain. It is quite the incline and does not provide rest along the way.
