This will be a more casual hike because of the location.  We will be walking on top of lots of rock formations, enjoying the geologic history of the park.  

There may be an optional post-hike stop.


Please advise the leader via email of any medical conditions that could affect you on this hike prior to day of hike.  An email with further details (weather, gear, etc) will be sent to those on the roster the day before the hike.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
