So all you have been doing for months is getting outdoors and hiking & running. Let’s do Big Iron!
Distance: 14 mi
Elevation Gain: 7200 ft, it’s a doozy!
Trail: Wear long pants
Parking: Bridge to Nowhere trailhead and adventure Pass is required.
Park at 6am for 6:10 departure
Group Size: 10-15. A bit depends on future covid guidelines.
Be responsible in assessing your readiness for this hike
-I have never done this trail, so bear with me when I pause to check the route.
-There is no water on the trail. Bring everything you need and extra. I will cache water
-Most of the route is extremely exposed to the sun.
-Bring first lunch & second lunch and snacks; it’s a long day.
-Rain and heat wave cancels; perhaps Apr 17 as backup date.
-Contact me privately if you want to share an emergency contact.
-I plan to have a Garmin InReach
Covid Rules – We will likely know more about the relevant rules as we get closer. I’m hoping the diligence and vaccine rollout will mean a fun time together. I’m not doing Big Iron my first time as a hike-your-own-hike and will cancel if the rules are that restrictive.
