Being close to nature and enjoy its tranquility.
To get some exercise and have nice conversations with the other members of the group.
I have done 5 hikes so far at the Umstead Park mostly. I have just started hiking in July 2013. I am a member of several other hiking groups in the Raleigh area. My longest hike so far has been 7.2 miles.
I am new to hiking and take every opportunity to go outdoors. Because I have 2 young children at home, I am only able to attend "local" hikes on weekends.
