***SAN GORGONIO Dayhike*** Saturday, June 22, 2019 6:00 AM

Mt. San Jacinto Hiking Club

We will hike to the summit of San Gorgonio @ 11,503' via Vivian Creek trail. This is an ADVANCED event due to high elevation and a strenuous climb of 17 MILES ROUND TRIP and 5500' ELEVATION GAIN. The average pace is usually about 2mph. Please have a map and compass and know how to use them. GPS and/or MAP APPS are recommended as well. You can stay with the group if you have not traveled the route before. However, it is recommended to travel at your own pace and know the trail. We will re-group at the summit for our longest break.

***THIS IS A RECOMMENDED CONDITIONING EVENT FOR ALL BACKPACKERS REGISTERED FOR THE LANGLEY EVENT OVER THE JULY 4TH LONG WEEKEND*** Langley participants will take priority!

***NOTE*** For those that require additional acclimation. Hydrate with water/electrolytes throughout the day one to two days before the event. Be hydrated sufficiently the morning of the hike. Travel at a slower pace. Take small sips of water/electrolytes during the hike. Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink water!
