Details

This should be a pleasant hike and a good workout, as we climb up the hill, have lunch and then descend back down.   We'll  travel on the Castle Trail out and back.



Although this is for new CMC members, all are welcome.  We will answer new members' practical questions and talk about pace, clothing, gear, etc.   



Please bring those of the  10 essentials  appropriate to a four-hour hike and that day's possible weather.  Wear proper hiking boots.  No jeans or cotton  clothing.  We can talk more about all that on trip day.



No dogs, please.  CMC policy permits dogs only on designated "doggy hikes," which abound in the spring and fall.



Microspikes  may will be recommended, so please bring them!  



Unlikely, but snowshoes could be an option (i.e. not required). 



Never snowshoed?  It's as easy as walking.  Rent a pair at REI or your local mountain store, get snow baskets (usually the same brand) to fit your hiking poles, be sure your hiking boots are waterproof, add some gaiters, and you will be good to go. We'll show you a  few tricks, if need be.



I will email you a day or two ahead to advise of trail conditions
