For experienced hikers, if you love to hike in the mountains (and sometimes local nature trails) at a pace between 1.5 - 2.0 mph, then this is the group for you. We are not power hikers and not in a hurry to be the first one to the top. We enjoy taking in the trail and enjoying the outdoors and all the nature around us, and exploring awesome trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway and other trails in Western North Carolina. Not all of the trails will be easy. Some will be long and strenuous but we go slow and everyone can go at their own pace. Some will be easy or moderate.
Most hiking groups have a policy on "No Shows." For this group f a person has two "No-Shows" they will be removed from the group and welcomed to rejoin when they have more time to go hiking. A "No-Show" is signing up for a hike but never showing up nor communicating this to the group leader.
