Paul, I'm starting a new part-time job on Sundays, so I will not be regularly attending the Loch Raven hikes. Damn. I will try to catch up with you and the crew on Saturdays at Oregon Ridge. Sarah Ann (and Tybalt)
This is a group for hikers of all levels. We have novice hikes for beginners, which are paced for everyone's needs, under 3 miles, and easy terrain. We also have weekly hikes that are moderate or strenuous for more experienced hikers. The hikes will be labeled as "easy" (mainly flat, walking), "moderate" (a mix of some hills and flat trail) or "strenuous/difficult" (steep hills or rock scrambling).
Anyone is welcome to organize a hike at any time.
We also occasionally do other activities such as horseback riding, skiing, kayaking, rock climbing, tai chi, swimming, star watching, and yoga.
