Thisis Hike #6 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 and educational.


Thishike goes up Trail Canyon trail to the junction, turns left on North Loop Trail, and ends at Lee Peak sitting above the ski area. The 3,800' gain, 11,300' summit, and 12 miles out and back distance makes thisan excellent training hike for Charleston Peak. It is all class 1 trail but there is a small amount of scree and trekking pole(s) are helpful. Be sure to bring a windbreaker, gloves and hat because it is generally cold when we take our break at the summit and thunderstorms are always a possibility.


HIKE QUICK STATS:

Distance: 12 miles

Elevation gain: 3,800 feet

Summit: 11,289 feet

Difficulty: Very strenuous

Duration: 9 hours (includes driving time)

Pace: moderate

We will meet inSanta FeCasino southeast or eastparking garage 3rd floorsection 3F. There are two garages; one is visible from Hwy 95 (that is the wrong garage); the otheris near the intersection of Lone Mtn Road and Rancho (that is the correct garage). We will carpool to the Trail Canyon trail head via Hwy 95N and SR 157 Kyle Canyon Road.
