We do hikes of many varying levels and each one could require different skills or abilities with the ultimate goal of having a fun and enjoyable experience.
We see this meetup as that of an intermediate or lower advanced hiking group. Our idea of a great hike is one just hard enough to where the group gets a good workout, but are still able to enjoy the experience.
We consider hiking a great way to combine exercise and meet like-minded people who like a bit of a challenge over varied terrain at a good pace. The volunteer event hosts exercise utmost duty of care and responsibility towards all hikers.
How strenuous and how much you are willing to push yourself on a hike is different for everyone and one of the main reasons we try to mix up the hikes offered. As for the pace, the general rule of thumb is 4-5 kilometers an hour (slower on rough territory). While we may sometimes push the group to pick up the pace, we do like to take in the surroundings as well as enjoy the company of the great people who love a challenge!
If you like our approach to hiking, then please join us in the adventure!
