Spring Hike in Hokuto!
« on: May 14, 2015, 07:55:03 PM »
Come join us for a walk around 美し森山 (Mt UtsukushiMori) and 天女山 (Mt. Tennyo) in Hokuto! This hike will take about 4-4.5 hours (just under 11km) to complete from the trailhead. If you would like a preview of the hike you can check it out here: http://www.yamareco.com/modules/yamareco/detail-440856.html

Date: Saturday, June 6th
Rain Date: Sunday, June 7th

The height change is about 200m (650ft) which means that it will be a relatively gentle hike. It will be a similar level of difficulty as Nishizawa Gorge if you came out for the Autumn Hike.

We will meet at the trailhead at 11 (which will put us at Kaioizumi Station around 5pm).

What to bring:
Comfy shoes (The hike doesn't look rugged so sneakers should be fine)
Snacks and lunch
Water/Drinks
Sunscreen
Bug spray
Sweat towel
Camera
