How did you learn about Kazoo Walkers Meetup?

I have been lax this summer because of the heat but normally, I try to get out every weekend and hike.

Typically, how much time (minutes) or distance do you walk?

Any time between 1 hour to 4 hours depending on what trail I am exploring. On the Kal-Haven Trail last year, I hiked approximately 11 miles each day for 3 days.

What part of our community will be most convenient for your walks? Downtown Kalamazoo, Eastside, Westside, Northside, Southside (Oakwood, Westnedge Hill & Milwood area), or Portage.

The westside is closest to home, but if the walk is interesting, I'll go anywhere.

What is the best time of day for you to walk?

mornings - I'm usually too tired after work

What days of the week are you usually available to walk?



I am a Master Gardener, a theatre lover, a photographer and member of the Kalamazoo Nature Center. I hiked the Kal Haven Trail last October and love finding other hiking trails to explore, in the area.
