JOIN JERRY FOR A MORNING WORKOUT HIKE

This Hike Is NOT For New or Beginner Hikers

***NO PARKING ZONE and Driving Direction: see below FYI***

This is NOT an introduction to hiking. This will be a Medium Pace hike with Hills...We will be getting our Morning Workout

This is NOT a beginner Hike

There will be No Sweep on this Hike.

Routes, Distance and Duration:

This is a dog friendly trail, a great regular workout with roller coaster hills for fit intermediate hikers. This route is rounding up to 5 miles in about 75 min to 1.5 hours in moderate pace and few stops. Elev. gain about 700+/-ft. I can be more depending on the group.

This is NOT an introduction to hiking. If you are just starting a fitness program, this is not the hike to do it. The route has several hills so be comfortable in hiking hills. The route has a small section of flat trail. The hike is about 75-90 minutes. Be comfortable hiking for that length of time. Click to read more about HIKING SKILL LEVELS

Suggestions :
1) Everybody should have good tracking shoes or traction running shoes
