We are a group of friendly people doing 10k (6.2 mile) or longer/shorter walks and hikes all around the Peninsula counties. We walk for fitness, so these are not strolls. Expect to finish walks within 2 1/2 hours, depending on stops. All walks are American Volkssport Association (AVA) sanctioned. Everyone is welcome to join us. All walks are free, or you can choose to pay for AVA credit stamps. Find out more about the Washington State Assocation at www.esva.online (http://www.esva.online/) or the AVA at www.ava.org (http://www.ava.org/). Local club on the Olympic Peninsula is Olympic Peninsula Explorers. Feel free to join any walks on their calendar also http://www.opevolkssport.org
Just show up and be ready to walk at the posted time. We need to register to each walk at the start location, so allow for that. It's important to join the group. Otherwise, you won't get reminders or changes and cancellations.
There are walks when we have a host to lead. Wintertime you'll see some cancellations that are weather dependent. There will be weekend walks when one of our clubs is putting on a traditional, staffed event.
Most all walks are dog friendly (with leash and cleanup, of course,) unless it's through a wildlife area. We'll say in the directions.
