• What we’ll do
Note: Advanced Hike. You will go on a waiting list until you tell me that you have gone on a longer hike recently and can move uphill at 2.5 mph or faster. No dogs please.
Precipitation/Excessive Heat/Fires in Area/Revolution/Apocalypse Cancels!
Note: co-listed with CHAT Meetup; expect n*pi/e hikers.
I’ll be hiking at a moderate (2.5 mph) pace, just enough for an aerobic workout at times as ascend the Sam Merrill trail to the historic railway and resort site at Echo Mountain, and up Castle Canyon to Inspiration Point, and then on to Muir Peak. We will return via the Middle Merrill trail for nearly 12 miles round trip, and very probably 2900 feet of gain. There is a pretty detailed description at https://socalhiker.net/inspiration-point-and-muir-peak/. This is NOT a beginner hike and those who cannot keep up with the group to Echo Mountain will be sent back to the trailhead on their own.
• What to bring
Good solid hiking footwear, 2-3 liters of water, hat, sunscreen, wind layer, brush resistant fashion sense, a smile, snacks and lunch for the top, and at least 9 of the 10 essentials.
