I would enjoy the opportunity to get back acquainted with moderate levels of hiking. Living in NH for many years, I did a lot of hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. Since coming to the DC area many years ago, I have done little hiking, doing mostly walking on residential walking paths or around the city, etc. I would like to find a group that offers easy and moderate hiking for newbies (starting up again). I like the idea of having lots of different venues to choose from and lots of options throughout the week and weekends. I don't think I am fit enough these days for strenuous hiking (impact of two lumbar surgeries), but could probably do light trail maintenance.
