Monday is the first day of February - or as I like to call it, Groundhog Day Eve - which brings the promise of longer days and later hiking. Yes! Join me on a fast hike as we race along the trails to beat the sunset. Official sunset time on Monday is 6:08 pm, and the park closes at dusk (defined as 30 minutes after legal sunset). So we'll have to keep up the pace to finish and get out of the park by 6:38. We will meet at the Park Headquarters parking lot, then hike along the trails at a quick speed.
Please bring a headlamp or small flashlight, as daylight will be diminishing as we finish our hike.
Estimated distance for this hike is approximately 6.5 miles. Note this is not a beginner hike; we will take a few water breaks but keep a steady pace up and down the hills to get a good workout.
|How to Get There:|
Parking fee of $3 required (or purchase an unlimited-visit annual pass that day for $25 at the headquarters building.).
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
$3.00 parking per car or annual CRNA parking pass
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
