Carpooling

Although there is lots of parking, we encourage carpooling.  You can sign up for carpooling during the registration process.  For details on carpooling, see the Carpooling section of the "Things to Know" page.

Carpools will meet at Calvary central campus (west side by the mailboxes), with the last carpool leaving at 6:30 AM. Carpool riders should prepare to cover driver’s expenses (gas and any other expenses incurred in transporting passengers to the event).

Cost

Hike only:  No fee  

Camping:  $14 per unit/night, includes one vehicle. One unit is one trailer or tent. 

Camping extra vehicles:  $5 per vehicle (to be paid at registration)

Camping

The group campsite will accommodate trailers up to 40 feet (no hook-ups). The campground has toilets but no drinking water.  We hope you will join us for singing and s’mores around the campfire! Campsites are paid for during registration.

Campers will be responsible for their own camping gear and food. 

Hiking

This hike will include 4 levels of hiking. You will sign up for a level when registering.  The levels are listed below, or see levels of difficulty for more details.  Remember to bring lots of water.  Although the weather is cooler and more refreshing, you will still need to stay hydrated.

Roadrunners – For the serious, go-fast hiker who desires the challenge of speed and distance (7 to 10 miles) and prefers to race past the sagebrush rather than smell it!

Coyotes – For the recreational hiker who desires energetic physical activity (4 to 7 miles) and the opportunity to stop and smell the sagebrush.

Prairie Dogs – For the casual hiker and families who want to get some exercise (about 3 miles) but stop to enjoy the view and rest as they hike.

Geckos – For the person or family new to hiking or just coming back from a long time away.  Hikes are approximately 2 miles in length of relatively flat terrain. 

Children

Children are more than welcome to join this event, but please read the Children section of the "Things to Know" page before you come. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in the group in which they hike.

      Roadrunners - minimum age of 15*, if experienced

Coyotes - minimum age of 10*, if experienced

Prairie Dogs & Geckos - minimum age of 6*, unless you are going to carry them if needed
