Hike Classification Ratings

EZ Hikes: 4 miles or less and 600' or less of elevation gain

A Hikes: 8 miles or less and 1200' or less of elevation gain

B Hikes: 8-12 miles and/or 1200' to 2500' of elevation gain

C Hikes: 12-15 miles and/or 2500' to 3500' of elevation gain

Some hikes will not exactly fit these ratings and may be designated A/B or B/C, etc. to convey the real nature of the hike.  In those instances, pay close attention to the stated distance and/or elevation gain and discuss with the hike leaders when you call them to arrange to join the hike.
