Hike Planner Updated

An update version of the Hike Planner Excel spreadsheet has been posted on the site.

You can access the planner through the “Forms” page or through this link (Hike Planner).

Now allows configurable constants – Rate of travel, Ascent time and Descent time, and Rest time/hour of travel.  Computes Total Distance, Est. Leg Time, Total Time and ETA.  Allows extra time to be added to each leg for lunch, long breaks, etc.

In addition to computing route times & distances the form allows entry of a complete hike plan including escape routes, anticipated weather, hiker list and emergency contacts.  Useful for planning as well as to leave with a responsible party when setting out on a trek.

Try it out and let us know what you think!
