This is a big one! We are going to walk all the way across South Mountain on The National Trail. This trail is long and beautiful with varied terrain to keep you interested as you make your way across the mountain. You’ll even reach the highest point (near the towers) where we can sign the register.
You must train for this hike. This is no walk in the park. 15 miles will challenge you.
The cost associated with this hike will help cover a shuttle. We will meet at the parking lot (listed below) and get shuttled to the other end of the trail.
Super important that you arrive early! We are leaving the parking lot at 6am! You will be left behind if you are not on time.
Distance: 14.5 Miles
Elevation: 2103 feet
There are bathrooms at the trailhead.
WHAT TO BRING:
Wear good/comfortable shoes
Plenty of water (there isn’t any on the trail)
Walking sticks if you use them

We will park our cars here and take a shuttle to the other side. The money from your registration pays for a shuttle to meet us in the morning and take us to the beginning of the trail.
