What we're about
On behalf of all the organizers of the Santa Fe Hiking Meetup group – welcome! We have a fantastic bunch of people, you’ll find everyone friendly and fun to hike with, and we think you will really enjoy the hikes. Meet other local hiking enthusiasts and those who are dedicated to hiking excursions near and far!
Browse around on our site in the Pages (http://www.meetup.com/hiking-399/pages/General_Information/?name=General_Information) section and take a look at our information about hiking preparation, etiquette, safety, and gear – good preparation for hiking with our group.
Everyone's pace is different and we want everyone to have fun. Should you find yourself on a hike that is too fast or too slow for you, your fun-factor is diminished. When using terms like “moderate” and “strenuous” each person interprets these terms differently. We want you to know what to expect from a hike and have the most amount of fun, so we have established a method to get everyone using the same guidelines. Read our Hike Ratings (http://www.meetup.com/hiking-399/pages/Hike%20Effort%20and%20Pace%20Description/?name=Hike+Effort+and+Pace+Description) for more information.
We look forward to hiking with you.
