Tell us what level hiking / walking / backpacking / climbing you are experience and / or interested in! Rate yourself -- 1 is Rail-Trail Experience, 10 is Mt. Rainier!

I have lost 75 lbs. in the past year and do a lot of walking. Still would like to improve my overall fitness level. I guess I would rate my hiking/walking level at a 3 to 4.

Tell us about your favorite hikes and / or times walking in the woods!

Went for a hike with my daughter near her home in VT. We had her dog and one of mine that was in advanced kidney disease and nearly died the month before. He was the happiest dog ever that day. He passed 2 months later but I have those wonderful memories of his joy.

Are you an ADK 46er? Catskill 35er? Any other hiking accomplishments you would like to share?


What other outdoor activities do you like? Water sports? Rock climbing? Backpacking? Biking? Alpine / Snowboarding / Telemark / X-Country Skiing?

I have cross country skied since I was a teenager.

Tell us about your best and worst time out on the trail ...

Same day. Walked along the escarpment trail down near katterskill falls. The views of the hudson river were great but we got lost on way down due to night fall. Scary walk back to car. Thought we were going to be in the woods overnight and it was cold.


I am a 51 year old female that is looking for beginner to intermediate hikes to further improve my health and endurance.
