What we're about

I am in my 30s and I want to organize hikes in the Rhein-Neckar area, the age of most group members is 25-45. Please note that the events are for free and it is a 100% volunteer effort.

The areas we are going to discover could be Bergstrasse, Neckartal, Odenwald, Pfalz, Heidelberg, and Mannheim. In most cases, we are going to use the train and in some cases, we have to go by car.
The idea is to have full day tours mostly on Sundays (12-19km) and on occasion, fast but short hikes in Mannheim. I also want to do some off topic events. The speed of the group is normal/fast according to SAC-norm/Schweizer Alpen-Club (of course we make breakes), if you want to hike slow this is the wrong group for you.

Please be prepared for the hikes: Wear appropriate clothing (supportive footwear, hat, sun-glasses, gloves, etc.. and bring enough water and a packed lunch.

A real first name and photo of yourself are required for RSVP in this group.

Locus Free map (Android only) is the best Outdoor naviagtion App

maps: https://www.openandromaps.org/downloads/deutschland (for Android: just click on the region Rheinland-Pfalz, Badenwürtenberg and than press "Locus V3 Map" for map download. It is better to use small maps for regions rather than full Germany map (device gets slow with big maps).

For hiking tracks just download the GPX-files from ourdooractive.com or other communities.
