I've been meaning to climb this mountain for a while now, and seeing as winter fast approaches, I'd love to check it out before the snows set in (EDIT: There might be some snow).
The hike is 10 hours long, and a 24km round trip - some hiking experience is recommended, since it is a pretty intensive and physically demanding hike. However, the first two thirds in are pretty flat, and take you to Norvan Falls (great picture spot!). If you want to head back from there and skip the grueling parts, that is totally fine!
We'll be meeting at the Lynn Headquarters bridge at 8AM. The hike will go on rain/shine, and it will most likely rain, so bring a jacket. We'll eat lunch at the top and check out the views (or just the lovely rain clouds). There is also a swimmable lake nearby, if you're of the masochistic sort. EDIT: Dress warmly and bring gloves. I will be keeping an eye on the weather and updating the trip status.
Getting there is pretty easy by transit, since the hike starts at Lynn Headquarters, but feel free to list your driving options if you have any.
