About the event

We are extremely excited for you to join us Saturday, February 18th at 8:00 AM. In preparation for our hike, we’ve listed a few reminders/tips to help maximize your hiking experience and safety:

1. Hike Difficulty Level – MODERATE – Length of total hike is approx.  3.5 miles. Hike will contain inclines, switchbacks, rocky terrain and slight elevation changes, but manageable for anyone who is moderately active.  Plan on a 4 hour outing, including rest and food breaks and food served at the conclusion of hike.

2. Please wear hiking boots or shoes with grip and ankle support – This will safely prepare you for the various terrain we will traverse throughout the hike. The terrain of this hike will be very rocky and rugged at times.

3. Dress In Layers – The weather forecast for  the day of the hike is  a high of around 60 degrees Fahrenheit. During our hike temperatures will mostly  be around 55 degrees. Please wear clothing that will allow your body stay warm, breathe and not overheat. Sunscreen and Hats are recommended.

4. Bring  plenty of water and light snacks for yourself – It’s easy to dehydrate during a hike, especially when the temperature is hot. Bringing a sufficient supply of water (At least 2-3 liters) will help you to avoid fatigue, dizziness, and other symptoms of dehydration. While snacks will help to supply your body with much-needed nutrients to keep you energized throughout the hike.

5. Please eat a sufficient breakfast at least 1 hour before the hike –It’s always a great idea to fuel your body prior to exercising, to avoid fatigue and even fainting. Oatmeal, eggs, and a few pieces of fruit is an excellent example of a sufficient pre-hike breakfast option.

6. Plan for a 4 hour outing  – Our hike will be about 4 hours long, including one planned 20-minute Soundbath session. Although we have one planned break, we adjust our hikes to meet the needs of our participants. We encourage everyone to feel free to take a break or adjust your pace as needed. Our hikes are meant to be an enjoyable experience, and we want to ensure everybody is participating within their comfort zone. Please let us know if you have any health concerns that might put you at risk during our hike. Safety is always a priority.

7. Download the map – Please download the directions to the trailhead prior to leaving your home to avoid any confusion.  To find the precise location PLEASE USE GOOGLE MAPS  OR WAZE ONLY, enter the following  gps coordinates to get to destination:  34.12503809733506, -118.31321651189045

PLEASE DO NOT USE THE TRAIL NAME ON FLYER FOR DIRECTIONS TO HIKE. There is a great chance that using the trail name instead of GPS coordinates to find directions will take you to the wrong location.

8.  Parking help –  This trail free parking. Please note we are expecting a large turnout and parking is limited so arrive

early to find parking and/or carpool.  Please look out for email at a later date with addtional overflow parking information. Once you have parked, please make your way to meet up location. We’ll also have an ambassador stationed near the entrance of the park to assist with directing brothers to the right location.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at info@blackmenhike.org or contact Jelani at

(424) 216-6671. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!

Warm regards,
