What we are looking for in a hiker, You must have proper hiking equipment, Boots, Backpack (Poles) and proper clothing for the time of year that we are hiking. "NO COTTON CLOTHING" . Your pack must have food, snacks, water, headlamp, first aid kit, fire starter and other needed equipment. This group is not for new people starting out but for the more experienced hiker that just hikes slow. To many times  we have hiked with people that have not had the proper equipment and knowledge and have jeopardized not only their safety but also other members of the group.

This is a hiking group for people who, hike at a slow and steady pace. I love the outdoors and I love hiking, but am often can’t keep up with the other many hiking groups in the area. However, like the Snail, I keep a steady pace and always get there in the end. We do hikes anywhere from 4-10 miles and elevation gains can vary depending on the hike and we hike at a pace of about 1 to 1.5 mph. Every one that wants to join the group will will go on the wait list and you have to fill out a one time questioner on your equipment and experience , we have found in the past that we were having several hikers coming unprepared and jeopardized the safety of themselves and the group. All the hikers in this group can not only handle the hike they are on but will also have your back in time of need.
