Class to Notice: Pacific Crest Trail Hike

This hike will be led by member Joe Beuttner.

Scheduled for October 21, 2017, we will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Clipper Gap Park and Ride, exit 125.

Joe has a suburban that can accommodate 9 people for carpooling; a donation toward gas is appreciated.

We will carpool near Donner Pass off the 80 freeway. We will start on the famous PCT and head south toward Highway 40 a distance of 4 plus miles. We will then exit the PCT and go on another trail very close by the Donner Ski Ranch and head north. This trail will take us by some beautiful high sierra lakes. We will travel 5 miles on this Northbound trail back to the 80 freeway. If it’s a rainy day, we will cancel.

What to Bring and Wear:
Hiking shoes, lightweight socks (bring an extra pair), Camel back with water (light day pack), electrolytes, sunblock, bug spray, hat, sunglasses, first aid kit, snacks, lunch, cooling cloth, toiletries (tp), and hand sanitizer

A lunch break will happen approximately half way through the hike. Pack snacks that are easy to reach while you are hiking. Most of these trails are not suited for dogs, so please do not plan to bring along your k-9 friends.
