What we’re about
Hey! Thanks for checking us out!
What is our group about?
We connect together as a group of people who want to hike and build a love and greater appreciation of the outdoors. We recognize that life comes at different speeds for all of us, and we share the challenges that hiking brings to us as a group. We are inclusive to folks of all (dis)abilities, and that will always remain at the core of our values. Our group is not about who is the fastest hiker. Our group does not feel the need to make a "mad dash" to the summit or to complete a trail in record time. We all share the same thoughts and challenges that hiking brings to our lives.
What are our goals?
Our goals are simple. We want to enjoy hiking as a group. We will work hard and look out for each other as a group. Safety is very important to us. We don’t believe in leaving people behind. We will cheer each other on and have fun hiking. We will encourage each other and take our time and make sure we all complete the hike to the summit together. We are a social group. Our goal is to facilitate connections that will develop into friendships and eventually meaningful relationships.
"Because when one person connects, his or her life changes, but when everyone is connected our world changes." - Michael, event host
How did it start?
This group was inspired by the interest of folks who have a range of diverse-abilities. Some of us use mobility aids or just think a little bit outside the box, so we began to organize hikes and walks that suit all different types of people. We want to welcome those who are brand new to hiking, those who are experienced, those who want to try something new, or those who just want to have a lovely afternoon with some good people. We look forward to connecting with you!
**Due to a high number of "no-shows" taking up space and forcing others to miss out on opportunities, we are now tracking attendance, and you will be removed from the group following TWO no-shows.**
