      Hi Jim,

      I have another place to be for 12:15pm on Sunday. So I will be driving myself, but thank you for the invite...

    I was considering this but wondering why your disclaimer says no sneakers? This us a hike and not a business meeting right? Shouldn't you be allowed to wear what's comfortabke?

      I totally agree, Chris.

      May 2, 2014

    • Jim B.

      Chris, yes it is important to wear comfortable footwear. We strongly suggest hiking boots as we are routinely on uneven, rough, step trails, where it is easy to turn an ankle without proper support. As one of the hike leaders, we take pride in seeing that everyone has a safe, rewarding time. If one of the hikers in my group were to get injured, this would cause a problem for all. A situation, I look to avoid.

    Hey Charlie, I'd love to join this hike and bring a friend....but we're "newbies" to hiking so could you tell me how long this hike is....also, where's the best place to buy a good pair of hiking boots? Thx.

      If you can possibly go to REI, I recommend them over Dick's. I say this because when I went to D's there was no-one to assist me & they had very few options for women. I have difficult feet, haha, and was very happy (no blisters yet!) with my Keens as a newbie. Have fun shopping:-)

      May 8, 2014

    • Jim B.

      Robin, I personally prefer EMS (Eastern Mountain Sports). Yet, Dick's and REI provide a reasonable alternative.

    I'm wondering if there are ever hikes scheduled for a Saturday, for the people who go to church on Sunday mornings...

    1 · May 10, 2014

    • Jim B.

      Mary, for this group the hikes are on Sunday. As Stuart suggested, other hiking groups have hikes on other days.

      May 15, 2014

    • Jim B.

      I know some folks attend Saturday services so they can hike on Sundays. Just a suggestion.

    Black Rock is great! Went there two weeks ago and did a 2.5 mile loop after church. It's a steep ascent - the way I went, anyway.

    May 13, 2014

  • Rob S.

    Hey Charlie, I'm gonna try and make this one

  • Doreen M.

    I enjoy hiking and the out doors. Hope it's nice weather... See you all there...

  • Pamella

    Honestly, it's really easier and safer to use hiking boots. I finally caved in and bought them and they give better traction and protection to your ankles
