    The hike was tough, but beautiful. Couldn't have picked a better group of people to have spent the day with.

    Hi, I am just getting back into hiking again. I hiked Castle Rock a couple of weeks ago and had no problem so as "Nike" would say "Just Do It!"...Looking forward to this hike!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
