This is a group for anyone interested in hiking and walking outdoors. Ideally, each meetup will be about 4 miles long and we will walk at a pretty good pace. Our pace is generally 3.0 to 3.5 mph or a 17 minute/mile, depending on weather and terrain.
While RSVP'ing is not mandatory, it is helpful to organizers. We don't intend to miss anyone, but, to be considerate to our other walkers, we do start walking at 5 minutes after posted scheduled start time. And, events will be cancelled if no one is signed up.
Many of our meetups will likely be at the Paint Creek Trail and Stoney Creek, but please feel free to suggest other locations.
The weather is finally warming up! Hopefully, the trails will be drying up, but, don't be surprised if we run into some mud.
Let's explore!!! Full Osprey Trail equals a 1.75 mile hike.
The Osprey Trail gets its name from the osprey re-introduction program which took place at Stoney Creek. This trail provides the best views of the osprey hacking tower and Stoney Creek Upper Lake.
