Wolf Hill EXERCISE Hike

  • Apr 9, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

5:30 PM, SHARP. Rain, Snow, or shine. Wednesday happens to be my only night open this week, but after this one we will probably settle in on Tuesday nights.

“Hey Mom, can I go outside and play?”


A couple of serious points:

-Hydrating well prior to hitting the trail and carrying additional water on the trail is a must. Bring lots of water!

-Wear clothing appropriate for the weather, keeping in mind that you will heat up quickly! Synthetic wicking and ventilating materials throughout every layer are best for keeping you dry while sweating. Avoid cotton! Wet clothing can cause hypothermia even above freezing. (Remember the name of the series?)

-Our trails are rough and loaded with toe-stubbing, ankle-twisting rocks and roots. Wear appropriate footwear! Also be prepared for seasonal trail conditions. There are often plenty of wet, muddy, and icy spots on some of our trail. This can make for slippery going. We will adjust our speed for safety in these areas.

-A headlamp or small flashlight in your pack or pocket will come in awfully handy if we should be delayed exiting the woods for some reason.

-Lastly, please take a few minutes to check out the tabbed sections in the menu banner at the top of this page. There truly is some awfully good info in there, especially in the 'Pages' section, all intended to help you in becoming a wiser, safer, and happier hiker.

    Glad you had a good one. I have Wednesday night classes through mid-May, so unfortunately I won't be doing the "hot and sweaty" until then...at least not on Wolf Hill.

    You don't need to have a large group to have a great hike. It was not exactly hot, but it certainly was sweaty! We were booking right along... even the wolves couldn't catch us.
    Thanks, Pat.

    Too nice of a day to go to the gym when this is an option... grading projects can be put off 'till another day.

    I love Wednesday hikes, and I love going with you Bob, but a rush order came up and I cant make it. Feast or famine with work always coming before play.. :(
