Sunset Hike Night!! This is completely optional, and just a fun activity that encourages team bonding. Coaches can’t organize carpooling, but the plan is to meet at the Black Crater Trailhead at 6PM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23. The trail is about 7 miles round trip.
BRING water, a snack and a headlamp.
We’ll plan on hiking (it’s steep in parts, so be ready to sweat). The plan is to be up there for the last 20-30min of sunset, then head back down as soon as the sun sets at 7:58pm. It will take about an hour to hike back down, so anticipate driving back from Sisters in the dark and getting back to Bend around 10pm. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join if they’d like. If they don’t want to hike, but instead head up to Dee Wright observatory or just drive some of the pass, that’s a great option as well.
If you are a photographer, this hike has some amazing views to get some good shots. If it is too smokey, we will cancel the hike so be on the look out for messages on SportsYou.
