    Great! This was my first hike ever! I was at the back of the pack, however, I was motivated and pushed by the team. Thanks Zoe, I really enjoyed myself and enjoyed meeting such a fun group.

    Is it ok to bring my dogs? They're about 16 pounds and super friendly. I can trail behind if others are sensitive to dogs.
