Start: 02/10/2013 End:02/10/2013
Difficulty: Strenuous. We'll be hiking hard at high elevations!
Here we go! Join Madi and Connor as we take the easy way out and summit San Jacinto — with the help of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. We’ll be spending all day on the mountain, so make sure to bundle up because it will be cold!
We’ll be explaining all the details of this trip in the membership meeting.
The price of this trip includes the tram ticket!
Meet: Meet at 6:00 AM at Trojan Grounds (TroGro). Transportation provided.
Return: Returning around 7 PM.
Pre-Trip Meeting: Wednesday, February 6th at 8 PM at the VKC arches
