Participation cost for this hike is $100. Andrew Segura Ministries (ASM) is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 affiliation. All participation fees and donations are tax deductible. The hiking trail is fifteen miles round trip, and can be hiked or ran at the participant's own pace. There is an eight hour time allotment to complete the hike, but all participants must be completed with the hike no later than 3:00pm. A registration expo will be held on Saturday, August 20th, 2016. Participants will receive an event T-shirt, hydration bottle and a free lunch after the hike with their $100 participation fee. In the coming weeks, the Trail Coordinator will email participants the time and location of the registration expo.
Participants seeking a personal challenge can hike the trail solo, or in groups if they prefer. Either way, Shuteye Peak will offer hikers tremendous views of the Sierra National Forest. Medics and volunteers will be stationed throughout the trail at aid staions to provide water and bananas for all participants. Participants will begin the trail at 6,200ft in elevation and ascend to the summit at 8,351ft. The trail starts out on a fire road that is shaded by a canopy of trees. Four to five miles into the hike participants quickly begin to ascend in elevation. This section is blanketed with a cathedral of trees and meadows. As hikers exit the tree line, their first glance will overlook some of the most majestic views of the entire trail. This is a great spot to stop for selfies and group photos. At this point, hikers will start to see several rock formations, including a popular loacl destination for climbers, appropriately named: Climber's Rock. Once hikers pass Climber's Rock, they will encounter switchbacks, but hikers shouldn't get their hopes up too soon that the summit is near as there are a couple of false summits. After hikers pass through the rock formations section of the trail, Shuteye Peak Ranger Station will be visible as the turn-around spot, and believe it or not, the summit actually gets very good phone reception.
