Thisis Hike #3 in the fourth annual Charleston Summer Series. Each Saturday hike is progressively harder in elevation gain and/or distance and is designed to prepare you for a successful attempt of Charleston Peak at the end of the series.

For those of you unfamiliar with hiking at higher elevations, I will be providing guidance on pace, breathing and preparations so each hike you attend in the series is enjoyable.


This hike goes up the North Loop Trailto a high point at 10,000' elevation and proceeds through a magical twisted forest. PriortoRaintree weturn left and follow a ridge with the final pushto Fletcher Peak at 10,319' elevation being quite steep. The hike is 7.5 miles with 2,200' elevation gain and is allclass 1 trail except for a small amount of class 2 trail.Trekking pole(s) are helpful but not needed. Be sure to bring a windbreaker, gloves and hat because it is generally cold when we take our break at the summit.
