Overview

This is an opportunity for women to enjoy the beauty of Rickett's Glen together in a supportive and encouraging environment. The falls should be gushing in the height of spring runoff. Yes, there are 26 to enjoy! We'll take the full 7.5 mile Falls Trail loop. The terrain varies from fairly level to fairly steep and rocky, and we'll take it at a moderate to brisk pace. We'll stop briefly to enjoy each of the waterfalls, so there will be opportunity to take photos and eat snacks. Participants should bring 2L water and calories for a half day, to be consumed on the go (there will not be a long lunch break). Wear trail shoes and put rain gear in your pack. This hike is open to all humans of the female gender. All good dogs on leashes are welcome. Participants must be 18+ years of age. Severe weather may cancel. Please sign up via Meetup to facilitate group communication. AMC has a new ratings system. For moderate hikes, fitness level and/or past experience to sustain the activity at a moderate pace is required. Expect to be active up to 4-6 hours per day. Reasonable breaks in the action. This hike is about 8 miles, 1,000 feet elevation gain, and 4 hours over varied terrain.
