Peak Fitness Challenge Hike - Schaeffer Shuffle Trail
- Start Time: 9:00 a.m.
- Length: about 2.5 miles / 1.5 - 2 hours
- *Difficulty Level: Steep initial descent down old jeep road; transition to relatively well maintained trail with technical sections into the canyon, leveling out along the ridgeline, then another steep and technical descent down the backside before becoming an easy leisurely stroll down the trail. We’ll reconnect with the old jeep road and have one final steep ascent back up to the start of the trail.
Bring: Water, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes/boots, hiking stick, camera, binoculars, a map and dogs are welcome on leashes!
