Hello and Welcome!
Back in 2006 I created this group to reconnect with nature and people who share similar affections. Wonderfully, this group has grown into a collaborative project with multiple leaders who are GREATLY appreciated for the experiences and time they share with us.
We are a fun and relaxed group of hiking enthusiasts varying in cultural and professional backgrounds who share the love of nature, mankind, as well as the ecstasy & agony of a good physical challenge…. along with the rewards of enticing foods and company. Safety for our group and preservation of natural habitats and trails is paramount in all we do.
Volunteer organizers frequently schedule day hikes, backpack trips, and other activities locally and beyond. As avid and experienced outdoors enthusiasts, our events are mostly challenging and strenuous with the philosophy that the journey is as much the reward as are the grand views and native areas we reach.
We also do moderate hikes and backpack trips for those who are not as experienced or would like to do events with their children. I have three boys of varying ages and will post events to share with children as well.
If we spark your interest, join us sometime as we’d be glad to meet you! Also, if you find that you would like to organize an event, please contact me so we can discuss the details.
