Expectations


This is a beginner winter hike, but you will need the gear listed below, no exceptions. You should expect to take your sweet, beautiful time on this hike, as it's a whopping 2.4 miles. Anybody who wants to speed through it should probably post a different hike. This jaunt should be accompanied by good humor and maybe a drink. After all, it's Christmas Eve!


Gear:


1) insulated hiking boots (no trail runners)


2) Non-cotton base layers for core and legs


3) Non-cotton socks


4) Waterproof shell for core and pants


5) Waterproof gloves (not small cotton gloves)


6) 2 - 3 liters of water to be kept inside of your backpack and somehow insulated


7) Food, including sandwich, snacks, etc


8) Map of the hike above


9) Gaiters


10) Extra non-cotton layers


11) Microspikes


14) So far no snowshoes are needed - I will update as required
