Group hikes are a great chance to get out there with some experienced hikers, meet hiking buddies, and generally enjoy the energy of the group effort to get to each summit. Of course, you can also do each hike on your own.
Good fitness: These are tough hills, but doable. Some preparatory hiking will go a long way towards having a fun trip and completing all seven summits.
Proper equipment: Hiking shoes, food, water, emergency gear, and even maps / directions.
Wayfinding: Have the directions, a map (especially if you don't know the area), and how to use it.
General Precaution: You need to be self sufficient. We've had some issues in the past two years with people expecting us to completely hold their hands up the trail and back. Because of the popularity of these group hikes, different hiking abilities, and this not being a paid or professional hiking club, we're simply not able to provide this level of service. You may be separated from the group, and we want you to be prepared to have a good time out there whatever happens.
After you hike any trail, you can come back to the site and post updates about the trail conditions for the other hikers by clicking the "Post a Comment" button on any of the directions pages.
