Hike Ratings By Dale Green

Hike Rating (Revised 21/MAR/93 by Dale Green)

These ratings are a mathematical calculation derived by giving 1 point for every 1,000
feet of ascent and adding 0.3 points for every round trip (RT) miles. Extra points are
added for off-trail miles (bushwhacking), exposure (high-angle scrambling), and
elevations over 10,000 feet.
