What we're about
You will surely be inspired to apply your "photo journalist" skills as you immerse yourself in the abundant beauty and tranquility of the natural world--exploring many of the area's more obscure nature trails and footpaths with other like-minded souls. Celebrate the colors, smells and other characteristics unique to each season. Bring the dogs--so long as they are leashed! And the kiddies! You may have to twist an arm in the beginning but both you and your children will be richly rewarded if you can encourage the abandonment of video games and hand-held devices in favor of gathering wildflowers, smelling the sweet scent of pine carried on spring breezes, or spotting a family of deer or nesting robins. As a Weekend Woodland Wanderer, you will enjoy scenic walks that are relatively low-impact and not as intense as events for our true hikers--or those aspiring to be. However, we trust that dogs and kiddies will help to keep everyone else moving at a brisk, healthy pace.
FOR OUR HARDCORE ASPIRING HIKERS, with sights set on conquering the Appalachian Trail or similar objectives, we will be calling upon the services of both experienced hikers as well as professional trainers as we include more intense walks and workouts designed to reduce weight and build strength and endurance.
