Hike to the “R”
8 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
$15.00 per person
Verdieck Tennis Courts (East side of Currier Gym)
Join fellow alumni and friends on a service trip to the R! This is a strenuous/difficult hike that requires strong endurance. Expect an uphill hike with no switchbacks for 60-90 minutes. This will be followed by two hours of brush clearing work to keep the “R” crisp and well defined.
Participants will leave the university at 8:00 am and caravan together arriving at the base of the "R" around 9:00 am. If you have a vehicle that can carry extra people on a dirt fire road, that would be appreciated. Some landscaping tools will be provided, but any tools you have feel free to bring.
This is an all-day event so if you have a retuning flight back home please note that return time may vary. If you have fear of heights this hike is not recommended.
The event fee covers water, snacks, a t-shirt and pizza in downtown Redlands.
