Event description

Description

This is a women's challenge hike to the top of Cucamonga Peak (8,859') in Southern California!

The purpose of this event is to celebrate women's strength and raise awareness about the struggles women face in other parts of the world, while raising funds for Maasai girls in Kenya.

It is meant to serve as a partner event to the Naretoi Women's Expedition to Mt. Kenya that Naretoi hosts once a year.

This is also a chance to meet and interact with other women with similar interests and to participate in a challenging physical climb in a supportive, team-oriented group.

Hike Description:

A challenging 11.6 mile out and back hike, 4300' gain and loss. This is one of the highest peaks in Southern California and on a clear day offers incredible views in all directions of the whole area.

The hike is strenuous and you should come prepared for a challenge. Our meeting point is the Icehouse Canyon Trailhead, estimated time for the hike will be 7-9 hours.

If you are not an experienced hiker, we suggest doing 2-3 warm up hikes before participating (4-6 miles with some elevation gain and loss).

Suggested Donation:

$50-$100

All money will be donated to Naretoi (a registered 501c-3 nonprofit organization.)

What to Bring:

  • Daypack (make sure it's comfortable to wear for extended periods)

  • 3 Liters of water

  • A trail lunch - sandwich or wrap, piece of fruit, trail mix and bars

  • Trekking poles (optional)

  • Comfortable clothes for hiking with the ability to layer up or layer down based on fluctuating temperatures (at least one warm jacket or sweater)

  • Hiking shoes or boots (consider bringing waterproof shoes since there may be snow on the trail and potential stream crossings)

We will provide:

  • Maps and a professional guide
