Get of the couch, and get into shape hike

Whether you are getting ready to backpack the Pow Wow, BRT, Sioux Hustler or Kek this summer or fall, find out whether you can still cut it on "Extended Training Hike" (TM) this weekend.  We plan to hike 10 miles with infrequent breaks (about 4 hours).  Come ready with your Lance Armstrong doped Stingray wafers, organic sugar gels and energy packs -'cause Murphy has up and down hills to put your body to work.  Guaranteed to loose 1,000 calories on this trek or - you can come back and do it all over again.  I plan to bring a 35# pack, at least 2 quarts of water, snacks etc. just like for a real trip up north.  Discomfort rating: 3.5 out of 5 (for city)

So join us for flowers in full bloom, get tips on light weight but safe packing with master hiker and conservationist working to protect the trails to impossibly high standards: Yours. 

Note: Positions now open for passionate co-leader interns interested in August candidate training course and  fall clearing trips.  Inquire within for a rewarding career in sustainable trail maintenance using handtools.

    Brandi, good question. Depends on the participants and the dog. I have had mixed experiences with dogs on hikes. What kind of dog is it and can it backpack 10 miles? Also, you might want to check whether the part policy allows pets (some nature centers do not).
