What we're about
Membership closed*. This group is for modest 55+ hikes for socializing, photography, picnicking, etc. It's primarily for retired individuals or couples who want to get out and enjoy beautiful Austin during the less busy week days, although some weekend hikes will be scheduled, particularly in summer months. If members want to have an occasional social event such as music or dinner, that would be even better. Hikes will be scheduled throughout the greater Austin area.
* As organizer, I am only willing to coordinate about 60 hikes per year. I do not want to have a very large group. My main principle is to ensure that members rarely are unable to attend a hike because it is full. Although the ideal hike is about 15, we often have to open up hikes to as many as 30 so everyone who wants to attend can. I will reassess group size and needs/direction at the end of 2017, and will open membership at that time if we can accomodate more members; no wait list until that time.
Primarily because of our relative large hike sizes, dogs are not allowed on our hikes. There are no membership fees; if you hike a lot with us and want to express appreciation for the group, do a little extra good deed with our group in mind.
