The Wilderness is an outdoor adventure group devoted to exploring nature and building community. We want to invite you to be a part of our outdoor community by attending our weekly adventures.
Our hikes are divided into three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced
Beginner hikes will take 1-2 hours round trip with very little incline. They will be focused more on relaxation than exercise. For these hikes, you won’t need a lot of snacks and little to no gear will be required.
Intermediate hikes will take 2-4 hours round trip with moderate inclines. They will be focused on the sights and scenery. Every hike will be in a remote area with a beautiful backdrop. A packed lunch will be necessary, lots of water, and a light bag for a windbreaker or waterproof jacket.
Advanced hikes will take 4-8 hours round trip with steep inclines. They will be focused on completion and reaching new heights. Most hikes will be 3,000 feet in elevation change and at least 10 miles in distance. We would like to do three to five 14ers every year. For these hikes, you will need to pack lunches, snacks, plenty of water, jackets. These hikes require previous hiking experience.
