     Excellent group. Robin is a very good organizer (friendly, kept pace and scouted the trail the previous week). Thanks Robin. Eben is also experienced and was helping out. Thanks as well.

     A well managed group. Dave and Kris did a great job of keeping all 29 of us together as a group. And it wasn't like herding sheep! They also mingled with all hikers - encouraging socializing even during the "big ass" ascents! 

    on Oct 22, 2013.

    on Sep 22, 2013.

  • Central Ohio Hikers & Backpackers

     It was raining when we started, making the trail slippery, sloshy and in spots really muddy. Yet, folks showed up, endured the conditions, and made a nice hike out of it. Just the kind of positive-thinking folks I want to hang with. That they like to hang-out and eat is cool too. Oh, and we were rewarded with blue skies and fantastic weather for the finish.

     Great group! The organizers do an excellent job, planning, scouting, and coordinating the trips. The group brings a good number of people to each event. The hikes are for avid and seasoned hikers, as the hikes are not your average afternoon stroll in a metro park.
