This year, the Park Service requires everyone to register ahead of time . We are not allowed to hike in groups bigger than 10.
Please register early to make sure that you have a spot. Registration, directions, maps of the mountain, and hiking tips can be found at
Remember to wear appropriate clothing for a mountain hike. The Rangers request that we understand the rules (e.g., what you carry in, you carry out) and that we be prepared: each individual should bring a bag lunch, a wind breaker, a sweater, a warm hat, 1½ to 2 quarts of water and shoes with good traction. This year they ask that everyone have a mask on person.
Unfortunately, we are going to cancel the cookout that usually follows the hike. It will be back next year!
