This is a group for day hikers interested in hiking local trails while the kids are away at school. All skill levels are welcome. I’ve just started hiking myself, and I love it! I’m starting this group to make friends with local stay-at-home moms in order to combat the isolation and boredom of staying home all day while the kids are at school To get some exercise To feel the elation of getting out into nature for awhile Talk while we hike The kinship you develop with hiking partners is beautiful! We’ll hike nearby trails of moderate or greater intensity. I look forward to meeting like-minded hiking enthusiasts with similar restrictions of needing to be home when the school bus returns our kids.
