Hello All,

This hike is open to everybody but it is intended for beginners and new members. You can hike with either a day pack or your fully loaded backpack.

We will meet at the park's headquarters/store at 8:00 and will start hiking at 8:15 am sharp. The plan is to hike for 2-3 hrs depending on the weather and how the groups feels. This should be roughly 5-8 miles depending on our pace. Please bring enough water, a snack and your rain gear in case it starts raining as we are hiking.

Qualifying hikes are necessary for members that want to go to any of the more advanced trips: Big Bend, New Mexico or any of the Colorado trips. You need to attend a Qualifying hike with your fully loaded pack to be allowed to sign-up for any of these trips.


Please check the park's website (link below) or call to make sure the park is not closed due to rain. If the park is closed the meetup will have to be postponed.
