Orange County Xtreme Hike 2018


About Xtreme Hike

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.  Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically.  It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.

The Orange County Chapter’s 5th annual Xtreme Hike will take place in the Inyo National Forest within the Mammoth Lakes district. This year’s 20-mile hike will begin at the Reds Meadow Pack Station and will take participants through the Ansel Adams Wilderness as they start their journey at the Devil’s Postpile National Monument, continue up the National Scenic Trail – the Pacific Crest Trail – toward Shadow Lake, and then loop back toward Reds Meadow on the historic John Muir Trial.

All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights. This includes an energizing pre-hike pasta dinner, and a post-hike victory dinner.  All hikers will be provided with a food bag the day of the hike. As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns.

The journey of participation includes:

  • Six months of training hikes around the Southern California area beginning in the Spring
  • Accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights
  • Daily workout calendar
  • Official Xtreme Hike wicking shirt
  • Pre-hike pasta party
  • Day of hike breakfast and food bag
  • Post hike victory dinner
