This is a group for anyone interested in hiking/walking and fellowship. This group will focus on hiking/walking at a beginner/intermediate level (average 3-5 miles/hike) at casual- social pace. I found that there are not many meetup hikes for the casual-social hiker in southern Connecticut. (Many meetup hikes are long distance hikes that take up the full day and go so fast that there isn't time to experience the scenery).I created this group to meet other outdoor enthusiasts who like to experience the outdoors and nature. Its much better to share our interests/passion with others.
