I used the website provided in the Washington Post giving information on hiking.
Moderate -- I walked 9 miles this past Sunday, mostly level terrain. Took us under 5 hours and I really felt it toward the end. I'm trying to get back in shape after breaking both femurs. I'm doing pretty well, but more frequent hiking, rather than just walking around my neighborhood, would be good for me, I think. And, as I noted above, I do love the outdoors: the woods, lakes, streams.
I love the outdoors and love to hike, especially with fun and interesting groups of people.
So far, have enjoyed the hikes, the splitting into small groups, pacing, and the interesting people with whom to talk while walking. This is about my 3d (maybe 4th?) hike with the group. Okay, I agree with the first sentence, but I now have to say this is my 21st hike with the Group since January 1, 2012 (Harper's Ferry hike)
