This is a group for any single over 40 who is interested in hiking on the weekends. You are busy during the week with work and would like to spend time on the weekend doing more than chores. You should be fairly active and fit and enjoy being outdoors and meeting new friends at the same time.
Hikes will be moderate to difficult and will be scheduled all around the valley but will focus somewhat in the east valley.
I would like to add that this is a hiking group, not a walking group, most of our hikes will be in the wilderness or mountains and have possibly significant elevation gains. They may also be quite long. I will try to add elevation gains and difficulty ratings to the descriptions of the hikes. This is not a hiking group for beginner hikers, although we will never leave anyone behind you are expected to know your abilities and be able to complete any hike you signed up for.
Please be sure to change your rsvp if you sign up for a hike and find you will not be able to attend, no shows more than once will be removed from the group. All hikes have a attendee limit and if you are holding a space and not showing up, then someone else does not get to go. Also do not rsvp yes to every event only to hold a spot "in case" you decide you want to go. If the hike is one you want to do and you have not already committed to something else then by all means sign up !
Please keep the following in mind as this is REQUIRED to hike with us :
• Dress appropriately for the terrain and weather
• Bring Plenty of water, about a pint per hour of hiking and hydrate prior to coming!!
• Wear appropriate footwear, this means hiking boots and or a good pair of athletic shoes, no sandals, no flip flops etc.
