Important Notice - Re: COVID-19

Due to the state of  this pandemic the Corona-virus epidemic, in order to maintain my usual high standard of service on to my fellow hikers and fitness enthusiasts, for this "Hike Funatic Event", no more than "(15) fifteen hikers" will be entertained whatsoever. Safety, and security is NTITT's utmost prime focus and of course, your well-being will be monitored every step of the way throughout the duration of the expedition.

Please read the guidelines carefully that will be the order of the day:

  1. At the meeting point, you are to remain in your respective vehicles. I will entertain each of you by the car window.

  2. A 15 minute grace will be given for late comers. At 6:15am, we depart the Look-Out to our destination. The objective here is to "START EARLY AND FINISH EARLY".

  3. Along the way, we will be taking the Sangre Grande route because of the horrible state of the Valencia Main Road which can cause extensive damage to your vehicle.
