Details

Limited to members of RMOTHG and their guests.
We will climb up to Carpenter Peak at a SLOW, STEADY CASUAL PACE. On the way we will enjoy beautiful views of the red rocks and other beautiful scenery. The group will stay together so if you have to hike fast, this may not be the trip for you. We will enjoy the scenery as we lunch at the peak and return by the same route.
The trail is a fairly steady up hill with a few ups and downs.
The hike from the parking lot is more like 6.4 miles and with gain and loss the elevation gain is more like 1000 feet.



Notes

State park passes are required so if you have one, consider driving. Day passes can be purchased at the park entrance for $7 per car payable in exact cash or credit card. This can be split among the passengers.

Please notify the leader with medical conditions that might affect the hike, eg diabetes. You may email me with this info.

If you have not completed a yellow emergency medical card, please ask for one at the meeting place.

Please bring the 10 essentials, layers, plenty of water, and your medical kit.
Look for an email update the night before the hike from my email address.
Feel free to email or call me with questions or concerns.

There may be an optional social stop after the hike if members want to eat. Since it is Halloween probably many will want to get home.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
