I'd like easy local hikes on the days in between my strenuous hikes. There are thousands of miles of trails here, so it's always exciting to do something new and different. I'm still amazed to find little sections here and there that I've never hiked. If anyone can show me a new trail, bring it on!
Sounds like you move at a fast pace so I'll try to keep up. The fastest I've hiked is 3.4mph average for a 20-miler/4,000' gain. I don't mind the pace of the hike--fast or slow, it's all good. But in general, I prefer a moderate pace on hills so I can hike/walk daily and never have sore muscles or feel tired.
Hello! Help, I've fallen into hiking and can't get out. Where's the trail? Where's the trail?
Good to have a local hiking group.
