Lets do some hiking around town to stay active and enjoy the warming weather, today lets do Zimmerman Park.
Distance - Variable, depends on if we decide to turn back early. I'm guessing 1.5 Mi.
Elevation Gain - negligible, mostly gentle ups and downs.
Fees - None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!
Duration - Variable; we finish when we finish. We aim for finishing by 7 - 30 pm or by sunset, whichever happens earlier.
Pet Friendly - Yes. You must have a way to restrain your dog . Ask the other hikers before unleashing your dog. (I usually bring my dogs)
Skill Level - Mild
Terrain - Dirt paths for the most part, Mild ups and downs.
Weather - Typically doesn't matter, I usually hike rain or shine, unless there is a lightning storm or a particularly bad wind storm. I won't decide to cancel until an hour before the event.
Afterwards - We may head to a restaurant for libations, but we'll discuss this towards the end of the hike.
Meet - Parking lot. Google location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Zimmerman+Parkfirstname.lastname@example.org,-108.6035894,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x96ade0fd6935c464!8m2!3d45.8051463!4d-108.6035894
What You Should Bring
Clothing - Weather Appropriate attire. Check the day of the event, plan accordingly. You will also be exercising and sweating so keep that in mind.
Water - Always a good idea. At least a liter per person is preferable.
Flashlight - We don't plan on hiking in the dark, but you never know. Headlamps are the best, but any flashlight will work in a pinch.
Kid Friendliness - As the parent or guardian you know best what your child is capable of. Use common sense, but if you need further details ask in the comments. In the end you and you alone are responsible for your child.
Medical Concerns - This is at times strenuous exercise, performed outdoors. If you are unsure for any reason please consult your physician before attempting any of our hikes.
Late Arrival - It is very important that if you are going to be late or decide to cancel at the last minute to let us know. We don't want to hold up the group because of stragglers. And please RSVP, it really helps if we have an accurate accountability of the number of hikers.
