Although all maps and trail descriptions contained in CyberHikes are as accurate as possible, they are not meant to be a substitute for official maps provided by the parks and USGS topographic maps. The wilderness terrain can change drastically due to both man made and natural occurrences. When hiking, it is always wise to have current maps available. In addition, be sure to check with the rangers that are on duty for current trail conditions.

All CyberHikes fall into the classification of day hikes. This means that for a person of average ability, the hike can be finished in one day. It must be strongly emphasized that the wilderness can be a dangerous place and no one should undertake any hike described in CyberHikes without recognizing and personally assuming the associated risks. You alone are responsible for determining if you should attempt any of the hikes described.
