Trek Footwear


It has come to our attention that there is some confusion regarding appropriate footwear for the pioneer trek. To clarify, would you please pass the following information on to the families of those who will be participating in the trek.

Appropriate footwear for the pioneer trek includes hiking books or athletic/tennis shoes. Shoes may have mesh.  It is not advisable to purchase new shoes for the trek unless adequate time has been spent to break them in. Shoes that fit well, are comfortable, and provide good support will be sufficient. In addition, those youth (priests and laurels) and adults who will be members of the vanguard company will need a pair of shoes suitable for water. No other trek participants are required to bring water shoes. With any further questions you are welcome to contact Sis. Darlene Rounsville, 771-1467.

  1. There is going to be a river crossing on Saturday (6/1). For those that plan to walk thru the river, I would recommend that you bring a pair of water shoes. If you can otherwise get across without getting your feet wet, i.e. someone carries you, you will not need them. It might be possible to share. There will still be about 3/4 mile (mostly uphill) of the Trek left after the river crossing. You can do it, but I would not recommend walking the remaining distance in wet shoes--they'll probably get very muddy by the time you load into your vehicles for the return trip home.
