** We are taking extra precautions during this time to decrease chances of exposure. Masks will be required while hiking and at all times during contact of less than 6 feet. The hiking pace will be slow for beginners with plenty of rest breaks. Our hike in will be around 2 miles. Participants will be required to sleep in their own tent, sharing is only allowed with members of the same household. Hammocks are a great option. One man or two man tents are also a good idea. If you are unable to acquire such a shelter, one can be provided for you.
