Calling all adventure hikers! This is a group for walkers and outdoor adventurers of all different ages, skill levels and body shapes. There is no fee to be in this group, but if you want to chip in towards the semi-annual Meetup dues, come talk to me. I started this group to get off the couch and get to know the people in the community. Fitness is easier in numbers. Good for your heart socially, emotionally and physically. We will walk at designated times and places. Try to remain active in the group. Suggestions for new activities are encouraged. And if you want to help post/organize events, let me know. Different is good!
Yes, there are summer hikes.... Here is an opportunity to gather together for a hike and then relax together for a picnic along the shores of Lake Louisa. To help us forget about the heat, let's think of "Christmas in July"!
Hikers will all start off together with a 3 mile loop and those with greater stamina can continue to complete a 6 mile figure eight. Trails range from sugar sand to packed soil and from exposed to filtered sun to shady.

We'll have a grill going with some hot dogs and burgers. Plates, plastic-ware, napkins and cups provided. Bring a dish to share, your favorite non-adult beverage, and a camp chair. Want something else on the grill, bring it DIY and make the rest of us drool. Swimming is available in the lake.
