Hello! Sometimes it seems like there is a gap in hiking groups: groups that do really easy things or groups that are much more challenging. I am planning to keep this a little more intermediate. Some hikes will be more advanced hikes, but done at a bit slower pace. This is a group to enjoy the out doors and get to know your fellow hikers. As I do like to get away from the crowds, hikes will be 1-2 hrs away.
I have 2 rules in this group :
1/ We are supportive and positive - toward the group itself, fellow hikers, and ourselves. 2/ No politics on the trail
Things to know: Intermediate group- anywhere from 4 to 10ish miles, may or may not be a trail, elevation gain/loss will vary but can be considerable, go out to eat after, do plan most of your day for this
^We are not a run to the top group. We are out there to enjoy the sights, laugh lots, and take photographs. However there is a wide range and speeds and abilities. I want you to be comfortable and enjoy your hike. Be aware of your abilities.
^Well trained and friendly dogs will be very welcome. I will have my dog Roy with us. I often look for hikes where they can be off leash, so that is usually in National Forests
^While children are not excluded, there is adult language and conversation on the trail.
^ Do know that these hikes are cross posted with our Facebook page.
^You are responsible for bringing your own supplies, gear, water, first aid, and snacks. While this group is amazing about sharing, being prepared will make it a much more comfortable and enjoyable trip for you.
