Hike Description:

This hike to Star Peak is reserved for participants that are 70 years of age or more!  Join hike leaders Ken Thacker and Irv McGeachy on this strenous hike to the top of Star Peak.  The elevation gain is about 4000ft over a course of 5 miles (one way), but it worth it for the incredible views that greet you at the top.

Bring good boots or trail shoes and plenty of water, as the route is “dry” with no on-trail water source.  Make sure to pack a lunch and/or snacks as well as extra layers and rain gear.  Good binoculars and a camera are optional, but highly recommended to enjoy the spectacular views!
