What we're about

This group offers walks and trails that don't need hiking poles. We'll also have some social fun for camaraderie.

This group was designed for people who want to be active, get outdoors, and get your adventurous side piqued. We do this through hiking and discovering nature trail walks, and periodic get-togethers beyond that. This group IS NOT a lung busting, calf burning, hiking into the night, hardcore hiking group. We are more the simple, easy and moderate range in hiking.

Our common ground is walking and talking and socializing, enjoying the camaraderie between us. Not every walk/hike or event is for every person. However there is always something new to learn, every single outing. Come one, come all.

Hike White's Creek to Dry Pond in Galena Creek Rec Area

White's Creek Trailhead

Let's hike this again, on the weekend. Galena Creek National Recreation Area (http://www.galenacreekvisitorcenter.org/area-trails.html) offers many trails of various lengths, elevations and altitudes. One of our favorite moderately-paced walks is Upper White's Creek to Dry Pond and back (approx. 2 miles each way= 4 Round Trip). Some elevation gain is involved, rising from approx. 6200 to 6700 ft. However, this scenic hike will take a leisurely pace with breaks. Take Mt Rose Hwy (US 431) west from I-580, to Timberline Road (well-signed). Turn right (north) to the road on your left for White's Creek Trailhead.
