Trip Notes

This trip demands a high level of physical fitness in order to complete it within the available daylight hours. Outside Chronicles reserves the right to deny participation if group safety will be compromised through an individual’s participation.  Outside Chronicles reserves the right to adjust the trip itinerary to match the skills, abilities, and goals of the group.

Prior hiking experience is required. Participants will be screened to make sure they meet a minimum fitness level to make the trip successful and enjoyable.  Participants will be required to join a training hike or submit digital evidence (GPX or other) showing they are able to hike 8-10 miles with a minimum of 1000′ of elevation change.  The fitness goal for the High Peaks is the ability to climb 1000′ in 1 mile. We will provide a list of local training hikes and locations to get you ready.
