We may be over the hill, we may not be as young and fast as we used to be, but we still love to hike over the hills! And into the valleys, and everywhere in between!
We're a group of fun, sociable folks over 50 who love hiking and the outdoors but at a more relaxed pace than some of those other hiking groups. Most of our hikes are within an hour of Raleigh and are between 3 and 6 miles long. We are about having fun, exercising, socializing and enjoying nature without killing ourselves! Sound good? Over 50, or don't mind hiking with those who are? Then join us! You'll be glad you did!
