Disclaimer: I agree to participate at my own risk. I agree not to hold Live and Thrive LLC, Sheryl McGlochlin, her assistants, or affiliates responsible or liable for my safety. I understand that hiking can be potentially dangerous and/or strenuous at times. I agree to go at a pace I am comfortable with and will let Sheryl know about any concerns I have regarding this hiking outing. I agree to inform Sheryl and/or her assistants if I don't feel comfortable or safe with this outing. I agree to stay with the group and abide by Sheryl's guidelines for my own safety and protection. I understand that consulting my physician is strongly recommended if I am new to this sport or have been inactive in the past. If I am new to Sheryl's group, I agree to attend a pre-hiking orientation, held prior to each hike, in the parking lot where we gather. I understand I may choose to do a shorter hike if I prefer. I will communicate privately with Sheryl in person during this pre-hike orientation and discuss any concerns I have. In addition I may contact Sheryl via email at email@example.com or call/text at 801-278-5313 if needed.
There is still plenty of snow in the mountains. Spikes (for snow packed or ice conditions) are required. Do you need a pair? Let me know. I still have some for sale. Depending on trail conditions some hikers may continue hiking to the lake (which will require snowshoes). If you choose that option come prepared and plan on getting off the mountain between 1 or 2 PM. There will be plenty of others turning around earlier and will be off the trail by 11:30 AM. In order to finish by 11:30 AM hikers will turn around where ever they are by 10:15 - 10:30 AM. You may always do a shorter hike if you like. This is an out and back - not a loop.
8 AM: Start gathering/greet hikers, confirm hiking trail & canyon and how to get there, any last minute instructions, quick orientation for new hikers, arrange carpools. Confirm whether you need spikes or not. Let me know if you need a pair since I may have some.
8:15 AM: Leave for trailhead
11:30 AM: Off the trail on or before this time (unless specifically stated)
Hiking outings, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, are designed as a 3 hour day hike, for easier to moderate hiking abilities UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE.
Regardless of your hiking ability, I'll help you get acquainted with a new trail each week!
