What we're about

This group is for 20-somethings and 30-somethings who love the outdoors and want to experience it with other like-minded people. All skill levels are welcome. Hikes will mostly be around Atlanta and North Georgia and will vary in difficulty and length.

Looking to meet people? This is a great laid-back group where you'll be sure to have fun and make friends, all while staying in shape or getting in better shape and clearing your mind in the great outdoors.

Dogs are welcome on hikes, but note that a small number of trails will not allow them, and these will be clearly noted beforehand.

If you have any suggestions of hiking locations, feel free to let me know!!

Trail Running Pigeon Hill-6mi

Pigeon Hill, Kennesaw Mt

Hey! I’m posting to see if there is any interest in trail running in general—one of my favorite things—and so time and date could be subject to change based on interest (and if this virus is still current). The plan as of right now would be to meet at Pigeon hill (back trails of Kennesaw Mountain) parking lot and run 6 miles of it. My pace is usually between 8:30-9:30 minute mile, but am open to whatever :) I am asking a question before being put on the going list tho: have you ever ran a 10k (6miles)?
