The Journey, no matter how you make it, symbolizes the individual “Summit” each person with cancer faces and strives to achieve.
Join us on this 3.5-mile hike on the Peruvian Gulch Trail to Hidden Peak, where a sea of personalized Survivors at the Summit Tribute Flags welcome participants as they arrive. The hike usually takes about 2.5 hours - please allow time to get to the summit. Be prepared for weather, wind, and sun, as well as a few small snow patches along the way! Hiking poles recommended.
You'll first walk through alpine forest with blooming wildflowers (please don't pick the flowers), then the views will open up as you hit the rocky summit area.
