Meet at the Wooly Mammoth Parking, Area BB.

fIf you live closer to Roxborough Park, you can meet us there but please let me know when you sign up.

Please indicate if you can drive, especially if you have a state park pass on your vehicle.  

Without a state park pass, the entrance fee is $7.00 per vehicle, to be split among the car occupants.

The approximate 47-mile RT will require a contribution from each passenger to the driver.  (47 miles RT x. 30 = $14, divided by the number of people in the car, including the driver).

IN ADDITION: Please TEXT me if you have to cancel the night before or the morning of. Emails will be lost in my inbox.



The goal is to get new members comfortable with the trip sign-up and trip-taking process. We will answer new members' practical questions and can talk as you wish about pace, clothing, gear, etc.  

I'll write you with a weather forecast the  day before. Do not assume bad weather means the trip is canceled.  We only cancel if the roads are treacherous. We just try to dress appropriately.

Please bring those of thehttp://10 essentials appropriate to a three-hour hike. Wear proper hiking boots, sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.  Rain jacket with hood is a year-round pack item.  Traction devices, such as microspikes, may be necessary as the trail probably will be icy.  (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.)  

Part of the trail is steep, so bring hiking poles if you use them.  If you have never used hiking poles, I have a few to loan, if you'd like to try them.

No jeans or cotton clothing.  We can talk more about all that on trip day. 

NO Dogs, please.  Look for designated "Doggie Hikes" on the calendar.

Let me know of any medical conditions that might affect you on the hike.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
