What we're about
We are a group of friends with similar interests - the primary one being hiking. It doesn't matter if it's a one-day trip or a multi-day backpack; we like climbing up and down mountains throughout the Globe. Having other people come along with us makes things even more fun. Other activities on our calendar include biking (rail trail, road, & off-road), kayaking (rivers, lakes, & ocean), and various adventure races.
Our approach is simple - the strength of a cohesive group is greater than the sum of its individual parts. We start as a group, stay as a group, and finish as a group. Our pace will be that of the slowest hiker. We travel in small groups (10-15 people) to lessen our impact on the environment and the others who are also out there enjoying the peace and solitude of the outdoors. The ultimate goal is to get outside, have a safe and enjoyable time, and then do it again.
Most of our hikes involve climbing to the highest summits. That means people may have to get up early, drive a long distance, and then spend most of the day hiking. There aren’t many late starts, short days, but will help the easy/moderate level hikers.
