This group is for people that like to have fun and adventure in the great outdoors; hiking in the foothills and mountains, camping, funyaking on the French Broad, whitewater rafting on the Nolichucky, biking the Virginia Creeper, outdoor live music, backpacking, spelunking and more. The hikes I lead will be rated either "Moderate", "Difficult" or "Strenuous" and most are what I would call aerobic hiking, but with lots of short stops to appreciate what Mother Nature has to show us! I'm open to others leading easier hikes and making suggestions. An example of "Moderate" would be the Lake Norman State Park "Lake Shore Trail" with one rest/food stop in the middle and some short water breaks etc. I've had several Red Cross first aid courses over the years, including the outdoor trauma course. JOIN US FOR SOME FUN!
If you have an idea then post it or send me a message!

Looks like we can sneak a hike in tomorrow before any rain hits!
This will be around a 6 mile moderate hike, at about fairly fast 2.75 mph so our hearts will be pumping real good!
Bring water and a trail lunch or snack
I'll be leaving Langtree Apts building # 143 at 8:30 AM. Let me know if your going to meet us at Langtree or the park.
Riverbend Park is located in the northern part of the county along the Catawba River. This 650-acre park provides opportunities for nature viewing along the river, hiking or running in a varied terrain, mountain biking, or experiencing upland forest and fresh water wetlands.
Last year we had lunch at the Angry Troll, I'm checking on other places. We'll arrive at Rocky Forest River Run by 1:45 to catch the 2 PM shuttle for tubing; that's the last shuttle of the day.
We also have 2 picnic tables reserved for after the tubing. Bring something to share with the group.
The shuttle holds 14 so that's the limit.
You can opt for a double tube at the same price and cooler tubs are included.
I'll be wearing my bathing suit to lunch and bringing dry cloths and a towel for when we get off the river.
Cost will be $20, payment will be due by Aug 1st or I'll have to move you to Not Going.
