Time for another training hike with Mtn Laurel to prepare us for hiking the White Mountains. We will hike the orange and purple trails for a total of 8 miles at a moderate pace of 2.5 to 3 mph. The trail has a several challenging hills for your cardio workout. Please wear hiking boots and bring your hiking poles. Bring a lunch or snack to eat half way through our hike so you can keep up your energy level. I look forward to seeing you out on the hiking trail.
