Please check that the trail is open before coming . They are controlled by the local mountain bike group and we must follow their rules. We will meet at the pavilion which is to the right after entering the park.

Reasons to join this event:

  • Scared of the sun
  • Get out of work late
  • Want to eat dinner with your family
  • Desperate for a real hike during the week after Turkey day
  • Like to dodge bikes
  • Test out your new headlamp & batteries
  • Dislike sitting in traffic on the way to a hike
  • Want to shop at the outlet mall before hiking
  • Free parking
  • Enjoy post-event trailgating
  • Training for the FTC winter thru hike

We will be doing all 3 loops on the Avalanche Trail at Olde Rope Mill. The map can be found here: . These trails are shared with mountain bikes but we are required to go the opposite direction and they are easy to see with their lights. The bikes have the right away on this trail so we will need to step to the side if we encounter any.

We will generally go 3 mph however it may be a little slower with the stops for bikes and the fact that we are hiking in the dark. I plan on having a 25+ pound pack so I will be unable to go really fast. There are not lights on the trail so you will definitely need a flashlight or headlamp. The park closes at 11pm so we must be done by then, this shouldn't be a problem unless something out of the ordinary happens

Total hiking is approximately 6.25 miles.
