Saturday, May 6th, 2023, 6:15am: Hike the Beast to the Bitch!

General info for all hikes and walks: Hikes and walks are $5 for members, and $10 for non-members (become a member). Unless otherwise noted, the pace for hikes is moderate, lasting 3-5 hours, covering 3-5 miles, the terrain is hilly, footing is sometimes uneven, and we follow trails and possibly paved or dirt roads. Walks are easier and shorter than hikes, and usually follow paved or dirt roads, no trails. The guide may periodically stop and talk along the way. Bring sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes, water, snack, bug spray, rain poncho, and camera. Shorts or long pants are OK. For day hikes, bring a hat and sun block. For night hikes, bring a small flashlight. There are usually about 20 people. We depart about 30 minutes after the posted start time. For some hikes, we will meet at the indicated location, then drive a short distance to the hike location.

Specific info for this hike: Meet at the top of the Beast by 6:15AM... We will walk down the Beast, head toward the resort, then walk up the Bitch. We will come out on Scenic road and walk back to our vehicles. The terrain will be mostly on the road, the back road (the Bitch) will be overgrown, but shaded. Don't forget your water (and snacks if you like).  Leader is Cathy.
