Let's get out and explore Forest Hill Park!
Interested in getting into hiking with your dog, but not sure if your dog is ready for the mileage of our regular hikes? Then Starter Hikes are for you! Starter Hikes are 1-2 miles in length and designed for people and dogs wanting to begin hiking with us but not ready yet to tackle a regular 4-5 mile hike. By doing a number of shorter hikes, your dog can build up his/her mileage gradually, and eventually be ready for longer hikes. Because these are shorter hikes, the charge will be $5 per person. (Starter Hikes are also great for older dogs or puppies who aren't up for the higher mileage - or for humans who aren't up for the mileage or more rugged trails.)
We will meet at Forest Hill Park from 42nd Street. This will be an on-leash trail hike. We are going to do some trails in the beginning and take a nice stroll around the lake. We will definitely be stopping to get in the water to cool off! This trail has some ups and downs in the so wear good shoes and be alert. Your dog will thank you!
Questions? Email me through Meetup or post your question in the comments.
We are thrilled that folks are enthusiastic about joining us on our hikes! Please understand that we can only accommodate a certain number of folks and pups on a given hike. Our group sizes are limited to ensure that we can effectively manage each group. You are welcome to RSVP with a guest (or two), but if the hike is filled up, please respect our limitations. There are more hikes on the way, you won't be left out!
Weston and I look forward to seeing you Saturday!
