Event description
This is a women's challenge hike to the top of Cucamonga Peak (8,859') in Southern California!
The purpose of this event is to celebrate women's strength and raise awareness about the struggles women **** in other parts of the world, while raising funds for Maasai girls in Kenya. 
It is meant to serve as a partner event to the Naretoi Women's Expedition to Mt. Kenya that Naretoi hosts once a year. 
This is also a chance to meet and interact with other women with similar interests and to participate in a challenging physical climb in a supportive, team-oriented group.
Hike Description: 
A challenging 11.6 mile out and back hike, 4300' gain and loss.  This is one of the highest peaks in Southern California and on a clear day offers incredible views in all directions of the whole area. 
The hike is strenuous and you should come prepared for a challenge.  Our meeting point is the Icehouse Canyon Trailhead, estimated time for the hike will be 7-9 hours. 
If you are not an experienced hiker, we suggest doing 2-3 warm up hikes before participating (4-6 miles with some elevation gain and loss).
