Learn about " Leave No Trace," Drink Some Wine, Meet Friends Old and New
You have probably heard the term "Leave No Trace," but wondered why it is important to practice and why some of your hiking friends are so adamant about it. Megan Bednarz, a Leave No Trace Certified Master Educator, will explain the reasons why, and also provide how-to tips. After hearing this presentation, you will look at our hiking trails and wild lands with very different eyes! The talk will get started about 7 PM, but feel free to come as early as you like and socialize with fellow hikers. (Newcomers and guests welcome too!) Gomi is a super-friendly wine bar (with a small but delicious food menu.) Happy hour prices ($5 for craft beer, $7 for select wine) will be available all evening to attendees.

What we're about

Public Group

Join us for a full range of outdoor activities all year round! From day hikes to 20+ mile challenges, from train-accessible local hikes to camping around the northeast, from lazy summer lake-swimming to winter snowshoeing, ice climbing, and skiing, we do it all!

Most local trips are accessible via public transportation and we organize car pools when they are not.

These are not guided trips - these are social events.Remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Stay within your skill, fitness, and experience level.

• Have a profile photo showing your face. This is required so your organizers can remember who's who. And answer all the profile questions so we know a little about you and what kind of events we should plan

• Most day hikes are suitable for any fit individual with some prior hiking experience.

• Everyone should be comfortable hiking alone and be prepared to do so (with a map and an understanding of the route). We make an effort to stay together as a group, but sometimes the group does need to split up.

• If you're new to a particular activity or moving up a level, please contact the event organizer. It is often possible to accommodate less experienced members, but not always.

If you do not have any hiking experience at all, please hike with a professional guide service a few times.
