TEST HIKE 1

Jordan River Valley
Sunday, June 10, 2018
8:15 AM at Deadman's Hill Trailhead


“I am excited about our first New Zealand Test Hike scheduled for the Jordan River Valley Pathway. This was the site of our inaugural Test Hike for our first rim to rim Grand Canyon trip. This Test Hike is mandatory for any Kiwi who plans to hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing trail. It is also a wonderful destination hike for those who are going shorter distances in New Zealand or for those not going at all. It is important that everyone interested carefully review the information listed below. Because of the cost of staging this hike, including personnel, two day setup, shuttles, insurance, hospitality room, and supplies the Cairn Stone tours policy of one free guest visit is not valid for this hike. It will be well worth the cost.”
Coach Ron Gunn
