Come enjoy scenic walks and hikes in the best of company!
We explore many of our area's loveliest parks and cityscapes. While our name says Alexandria, our footprint extends throughout Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland to enjoy all the great places this area has to offer.
We have some of the finest people you'll ever meet anywhere. Awesome people being awesome! Also, all of our events are and always will be free and open to everyone 18 and older. All we ask is that you show up with a big smile and be yourself. What's not to like?
(1) You are ultimately responsible for your own safety and well being during events. That means anything that happens to you while on the trails with us is your own fault.
2) For legal purposes, this is a kid-free zone. That means no one under 18 is allowed. Our outings are planned based on the capabilities of our average adult participant.
Welcome, Alexandria trailblazers!!!
