How did you discover Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group (MAHG)?

Several of the members in my fitness group have told me about it

What are you looking for out of this group? (walks, transition from walking to hiking, easy, moderate, or strenuous hikes, ultra hiking, or trail maintenance work?) Please state all that applies to help us plan activities to meet your needs...

I like hikes of 3-10 miles, probably 2.5-3.5 mph. I don't know where that falls in strenuosity (is that a word?), but don't mind elevation change. Last time I tried Old Rag in 95-degree weather, it was a bit too much.


When I was a kid, my father took me on walks every weekend. I have continued that tradition all my life. I'm also a pilot, and when I can combine the two, one cannot stop me from smiling.

    Looks like the website limits guests to +1, but I've got 2 for Ocracoke. Know a way to add +2 or is this a trip limit?

    I'm very happy about being able to join this group - even though I'm only passenger status - and be able to fly here and there. What could be better for the air-sign Gemini! :-)

    Hi, thanks for the welcome message! My cat is almost 2 years old so he's a pretty new family member. I always like meeting fellow cat lovers. :)

    Happy Holidays, Alan. Saw an email from you to the group and just wanted to say Hi. Matt and I have been busy and haven't been to the meetups lately. However, we still want to thank you for organizing all these fun events in the past few years. We (including our crazy dog) enjoyed them tremendously and definitely enjoyed your company. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
