Things to Know

Off Trail Route
The hike down to Cathedral Peak is designated an an unoffical off-trail route, meaning that it is not maintained, is poorly marked and it is up to you to know whether you have the skills and ability for the hike. Please read the Off Trail information in the section on "Being Prepared" before heading out on the hike.

The Cathedral Peak area has as many if not more Search and Rescue callouts than any other location because people over estimate their skills, don't breing the proper gear with them, can't find their way out or stay too long and are unable to navigate in the darkness.
