About The Event

WAIVER <------------- MUST READ

This trail is rated moderate. The actaul trail length will be between 6 and 7 miles. About half of the trail is on a paved road and the other half is slightly rocky.

***It is essential on group hikes that you stay with the group. We will stop periodically for water and snack breaks as well as to take pictures. If you are unfamiliar with how to read trail signs or to follow a trail, do NOT wander away from the group.***

This is a reminder that this hike is Free, however, entrance into Great Falls Park is typically $20. Where we are parking may or may not be charging to park. Be prepared to pay to park just in case. If you have a National Pass or Great Falls Pass, you can use that to enter the park for Free. If you are interested in purchasing either you can visit America The Beautiful Pass . Having that pass is advised if you plan on hiking at a lot of National Parks.

How to prepare?

1. Wear comfortable shoes. If you have hiking boots that would be prefered. However, if you have not committed to buying hiking shoes, wear comfortable tennis shoes.

2. Check the weather for the day and dress appropriately. When you are hiking in the winter, you want to dress in layers so you can take off and add on as needing. Winter hikes typically start out cold, but once you start moving, you will get warm, so you want to be able to remove layers as needed.

3. Bring a small to medium size back pack. This is to carry any personal items; cell phone, water, personal medication, and any other items you may need.

4. Always bring a at least 1L of water. Make sure you have hydrated the day before, and the day of the hike.

5. Remember, there are no bathrooms in nature, so stay hydrated but make sure you are good to hike without needing a bathroom. If you do need to use the bathroom, nature will be your stall.

6. Suggested: Download the AllTrails app. That will help you get familiar with the trail and you can see in real time where we are 

on the trail.

**Hiking happens in all weather. This hike will not be canceled because it is "cold outside." If there is a risk of harm or safety hazard outside of reasonable winter weather hiking, this hike will be rescheduled for another more suitable date.
