Hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray, and paper towels will be provided. This is to protect our hikers and event volunteers. Masks can be removed during the hike, but we are asking that social distancing rules be followed at all times.
In the event of severe or threatening weather, for safety reasons, we may need to cancel this event last minute. If this happens, we will be unable to refund donations.
