Difficulty: Easy/Moderate, 2 miles

Updated Coronavirus Protocol:
Due to the very high percentage of fully vaccinated people on our hikes, in 2022 we will be returning to our customary hike route and transportation plans. Depending on the location, carpooling may be recommended in some instances. **If you are uncomfortable with these arrangements, please let the hike committee know at svmhikes@gmail.com and your credits will be reserved for future hikes.**’

We will observe the following hiking procedures due to COVID:

  • Please bring a mask to the event to use during carpooling.
  • No one who is sick, running a fever or potentially exposed to COVID should attend
  • If not vaccinated, masks should be worn in all group settings like sign-in and congregation
