The path of in between, a place of abstraction,
indescribable and inconceivable, a place of unlimited potential.
He is the journey between decision and the first explosion of movement. He never leaves this abstract realm.
He never falls or fails, despite the cliff edge opening over a bottomless gulf.
Wherever the Fool goes, the ground rises to meet him. His steps create the universe.
He is the reminder that life is about the journey,
about taking the first step,
not the destination."
The Fool’s Traverse is a challenging endurance event hosted by TRVRS Outdoors and created to promote a safer hiking experience while raising awareness for outdoor stewardship throughout our public lands. The event consists of 11 checkpoints within the Mount Baldy area of which participants strategically navigate in order to increase eligibility to win prizes from our sponsors.
The 11 markers are located almost completely above 8,000 feet and the trails that connect them feature scenic views as well as drastic elevation change. The route can fluctuate between easy hiking trails, technical class-2 terrain, and some steep talus fields. Its participants are rewarded with stunning views of the Sheep Mountain Wilderness, the Angeles National Forest, and the Cucamonga Wilderness territories.
