This is a group for people interested in hiking but who aren't in a super rush to get up (or down) the mountain. However, this does not mean we are slow or that we won't push to get up the hill. If you'd like to join me on my walk, great, if my speed isn't for you, there are lots of meet-up groups to check out. Hikes will be at least four miles but no more than six or seven miles and the elevation gain will be under 1200 feet (unless the distance/elevation is clearly noted in the description). We will go at an even pace, but will stop as the need arises to catch our breath and take a look around. Photographers are welcome but you need to keep up with the group. While I am comfortable with many of our local trails/parks I would like to learn more and look forward to exploring with like-minded individuals with an adventurous spirit. There are several excellent hiking groups available in Meet Up already and I belong to several of them but, I've sometimes had trouble keeping up with the speed/distance or they were slow and didn't go far enough, so... I thought I'd try to set up my own and see how it goes. I'm feeling a little like Goldilocks looking for just the right hike. While I am a senior, everyone is welcome.
