After Work Hike: Slingshot Workout Hike

July 22 @ 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm

Time: 5:15pm (please be prompt because we will leave by 5:20pm)

Heat Notice: If it is hotter than 92 degrees, the hike will be rescheduled.

Location: Michael Emery Trailhead

Who Should Attend: We will be hiking as a group, so know your physical ability to hike about 3.0mph because the trail is flat except for the slingshot part of it.

Hike Description: We will be hiking for approximately one hour and 45 minutes at a quick pace. Note: This is NOT a stroll. We start hiking on the Michael Emery Trail and then head up a foothill mountain trail. There is no name for the trail, so I’m calling it the Slingshot Trail because after the warm up we start heading straight up. There will be at least 800 ft. of elevation gain. Once we reach the top, it will be worth it because the views are incredible. Breaks will be minimal and short because we are hiking for less than two hours.

Hike Opt-Out Option: If you don’t want to do the slingshot part of the hike, you are more than welcome to wait at the base of it until the rest of the group returns.

Dogs: Dog park friendly dogs welcomed. Limit of four dogs and I will be bringing one, so let me know if you are bringing one.

Items to Bring:
1) Water (at least 24 ounces)
2) Hiking Boots or shoes that protect your toes
3) Hat (optional, no shade)
4) Sunglasses (optional)
5) Sunscreen (optional)
6) Trekking poles (optional, for the Slingshot, it is steep)
