Celebrate the first day of fall by climbing three peaks. Yes, three peaks: Deception, Lake and Penitente - and they are all over 12,000 feet! Participants will start at the Ski Santa Fe upper parking lot and hike up the ski slopes to Deception Peak. After catching our breath, we will scramble the exhilarating connecting ridge to Lake Peak. From here we will take the easy trail to the grassy summit of Penitente. The Skyline Trail will take us down to Puerto Nambe where we will connect with the Winsor Trail for the hike back to the ski area.
The steepest part of the hike will be the beginning, from the ski area to at the top of Deception. The rest of the hike is easier. if you are fit and have been hiking all summer, please join us.
