Trip Planning Questions

Have you done any bike and hike trips before?

What trips have you done this year with at least 1400m elevation gain?

Are you cool with this being a fast-paced (but easy-going) trip?

Do you think you can complete this trip in less than 6-7 hours return?

Participant Information

Bike up past the Seymour Fish Hatchery 12km (<1 hr), lock up bikes, then hike to Bishop, Jarret (Deacon), and Presbyter

The total hike for that is about 9km RT (but 1400-1500m cumulative elevation gain), we can judge the time and see if we feel up to doing Vicar + Curate as well (I think not though)

That would make the total hike more like 14km and 1700m+ gain, plus the 12km bike back out (but downhill!)


I am planning to do this as a very fast-paced trip with only microbreaks and a short summit break (but not trail running), but don't want to leave people behind either. 

My best guess is being able to do this in about 6-7 hrs including biking so we may need headlamps for the bike out!

I bike and hiked South + Middle Needle and then Coliseum + Burwell last year so this is the next step up for me!
