We are a fit and energetic senior group of hikers. Our average speed is about 2 (more or less depending on trail conditions and weather) miles per hour.  You must be physically fit to hike with us. Otherwise you will have difficulty to keep up with the group.  Hiking requires more energy, strength, and stamina than walking.  If you are thinking about old people’s slow walks on paved and flat surface because we are seniors, I would not recommend to join this group because we are much more active than you think.  Our objective is no different from younger hikers even though we are seniors. Please keep in mind that we are brisk hikers, and not slow walkers.

There are two weekly hikes: Shorter Hike (about 3+ miles on smooth as well as rocky terrain with a moderate long slope), and Longer Hike (about 6 - 7 miles on a mixture of smooth and rough as well as rocky, and hilly terrain) at Friedrich Park in San Antonio.  The longer hiking group regularly ventures out once a month to the Hill Country State Natural Area (about 6 - 8+ miles and challenging) in Bandera. Also we hike at Government Canyon State Natural Area (difficulty varies). We hope to explore additional places in the future — in Texas and perhaps also national parks in other states.  These weekly and monthly hikes take place on weekdays in order to avoid crowds. 

Please read each hiking description before you decide to join to determine your physical fitness level. If you’re not sure of your fitness level, consider starting out with the shorter hike and moving up to the longer one.   

If you love nature and hiking on natural trails in wilderness, want to enjoy the company of avid hikers of 60+, and stay fit for years to come, this group is for you.
