Hey, this hiking thing might be fun....... Who wants to go? Let's celebrate my kids going back to school with a nice walk in the MetroPark..... Germantown - one of my favorites. No running, no speed hiking - however, it will be a nice brisk pace just above 3 mph. We will hike the orange trail counter-clockwise, finishing up with the big hills at the end of the hike for that extra challenge. This hike is not a picture taking hike.... It is more like a fitness hike. If you want to walk slower, that is fine, the trail is well marked and easy to follow, we will see you at the end of the hike.... If someone wants to lead a slower group, that is fine as well - maybe we can go in two different directions and all take a break together when we meet on the trail in the middle! Totally up to all of you! I will be leading a series of BRISK paced and SPEED hikes all through the fall at Germantown, Twin Creek, Sugarcreek, Grant Park, John Bryan, Glen Helen, and even Hocking Hills and Wildcat Hollow. I welcome anyone who wants to join in and have a good time. I have one rule: NO COMPLAINING, LOL! If we are walking too fast, I am sorry - the speed of the hike will always be posted on the website and will always be followed. The only time we will ever increase the speed is if all participants want to go faster. I am doing this for fitness and training and invite others to come and enjoy the woods with me. Let's get out there and enjoy the woods and get moving! We should finish this hike by 11:00 - 11:15 am.
