https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/1/f/f/7/600_433028183.jpeg

This is a group for anyone interested in hiking and other outdoor activities in all four seasons. The focus is on day hikes within an hours drive of Boston that offer fun outdoor experiences; some in places you may never have known to exist. Our focus is hiking, but we offer other trekking opportunities like kayaking and biking. While all skills levels are welcome, most of the hikes will be at an intermediate level providing an atmosphere conducive to socializing and getting to know your fellow travelers.

"I haven't bothered to go on other hikes even though I belong to other groups - because this one feels like home! Why stray?" Kim
