I have been a member and event host of Tennessee Hiking Group (THG). To broaden the scope of hiking experience, we started HCNS.
A healthy society and social responsiveness
I am a laboratory biologist and educator, and appreciate hiking and nature.
I started my hiking experience with the Tennessee Hiking Group(THG) some 5 months ago. Soon, I found a niche to form a new hiking group for members who want to walk non-stop for 5 miles. Typically, these non-stop hikers have experience in long distance hikes with little effort. As part of THG, we had several of these non-stop hikes, and were well received. In these non-stop hikes, hikers generally form a front and back group to accommodate moderate- as well as fast-paced hikers.
