There are many great groups on meetup offering easy to moderate hikes to get you started on your journey into the great outdoors.

This is not one of them.

We cater to experienced hikers, looking for long distances and great gains in elevation. Our hikes range in difficulty from very difficult to super-human ability required. Our very easiest of hikes are at a bare minimum 15 miles with 5000ft of gain. We hike in rain, shine, snow, sleet, hail, just about anything short of the woods being ablaze. Except in cases of the most dire emergency, we do not cancel hikes, and no hike will be posted without a committed, dedicated leader, ever.

We are a welcoming, yet very selective group. Currently membership is by referral only. In the future, we may be scheduling 'Welcome, New Member' hikes, where we can, by mutual agreement determine if you are a good fit for us, and we for you.

If you are ready to challenge yourself, we might be a good match for you. Inquires welcome.
