Going Longer on the Long Canyon – Saturday – Day Hike

March 16 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

Now that we have warmed up a bit, let’s go tackle the Long Ranch one route variation at a time.

There will be two separate routes of varying distance and difficulty levels, starting at the same trail head with two leaders. This will allow everyone to participate depending on your skill/fitness level or just how you are feeling that evening! We will experience a wide variety of terrain: Rocky trails, single-track, wooded, urban, fire road, flat-rocks, etc.

The Routes: (Subject to change – so please follow the leader!)

Here is a picture of the route.

We will stop at junctions to make sure everybody makes any turns or chooses the correct direction at splits. There may not always be a sweeper designated to be the last hiker.

Each hiker is responsible for knowing their capability, only attending events where they are able to sustain the described pace, for keeping up with the group sufficiently enough to make the turns and not get left behind, and for making sure the host is notified if they are going to split from the group.
