If you like switchbacks, you'll love this hike! Mt. Baden Powell offers 40 switchbacks in just under 3,000 feet of elevation gain. Yikes! But the canopy of pine and fir trees and view from the top make the leg (and lung) workout totally worth it.
This hike is not recommended for beginners. It is recommended that each hiker bring the 10 essentials. Though we will not leave anyone behind, hikers often get separated, and it is always smart to have your own map, food, sunscreen, and basic first aid on hand.
It is REQUIRED that each hiker bring at least 2 liters of water - I will be checking! This is for your safety as well as the safety of the group.
