Five women set off into the Willamette National Forest in the Oregon Cascades, primed for a hiking trip filled with relaxation and breathtaking scenery. Lexi Reylds, a happily married real estate mogul in the mood to celebrate, heads the show. With Lexi is her sister, Leni, from New York; her secretary, Susie, who's about to get married; a friend, Sally, who hopes to clear her head in the mountain air; and Carol Lyn, who doesn't want to be there at all. Lexi has idea that earlier in the week her husband hired someone to kill her. In a dark bar, Bart Reylds made a plan with the odious Freddie The Ferret Feretsky. Bart wants his wife dead by the time he's back from an incent trip to Vegas, but he pays the Ferret to kck off Lexi- one else. Bart has idea that he's hired a monster that will stop at thing to fulfill a constant lust for human blood. What began as a peaceful romp through the quiet wilderness is about to turn into a fight to survive for five women who never saw it coming. The Ferret is on their trail, but he may have gotten in over his head. If they survive, this hike may take them all into the mouth of madness.
