Hart Park Sunset Conditioning Hike.

Join us for a late afternoon conditioning hike, finishing in evening twilight and providing unobstructed views of the Bakersfield sunset. This hike will start as late as possible each week to provide a finish near the end of Civil Twilight and a beautiful Bakersfield sunset! 

We meet at the Sheriff's shooting range near the "west" entrance to Hart Park.  I plan on changing the start times to later times that will allow more people to attend on Thursday evenings while also allowing views of the sunset. 

This one and a half hour hike is moderate because we do keep a good pace as we move up down some hills, a few which are somewhat steep and can be slippery. The total distance is about five miles with an elevation gain of around 1500 feet.   I would not recommend this hike for anyone who is not in shape. You don't have to be in great hiking shape but you do need to have a recent history of regular cardio exercise.

So, if you are looking to keep in shape and something to do, join us this Thursday afternoon at the posted start time.  A headlamp should not be needed but I always like to carry one for emergencies. 

This picture is an example of a few of the excellent hills to climb, making your heart beat and calories burn!  There are also level and down hill areas to allow recovery while still keeping on the move.

    Great hike today! Everyone stayed together mostly while we still finished in good time! Also, perfect weather with clean air. It was nice to look west and see the Temblors again!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
