What we're about


Off the beaten path, following trails less traveled & laughing along the way .


Hikes in the middle of nowhere to destinations most people have never been.

Visiting animal sanctuaries, kayaking and just plain exploring.

Though we have pushed ourselves to climb mountains we thought we never could--hello, High Peaks!--lately we trend towards smaller peaks, chasing waterfalls & trails to lakes and other interesting places. Many of us are rebuilding fitness and hiking again after managing injuries. No racing here, for now!

We've been known to enjoy a happy hour or two as well as organize meet and greet picnics and dinners. Hopefully we will again --once we are all way past the pandemic. Other past activities have included joining a yoga class held on the beach at Glimmerglass and venturing to Smyrna to bond with the wolves at the Wolf Mountain Nature Center.

We do stuff like that!

Always an adventure and good times!
