This is part of a series of day hikes offered year round. You'll discover that we are a very consistent group, hiking every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning.

I launched this group in February 2003 and had so much fun I forgot to stop. Kind, caring, friendly hikers will welcome you to our group when you arrive.

Regardless of your hiking ability, you are invited to join us in our beautiful outdoor playground known as the Wasatch Mountains and way beyond.

We hike a wide variety of trails year round. New hikers join often. You'll meet our core members as you come often.

Besides local hikes, you are invited on our many adventure trips, domestic and international.

Specific details for local hikes are not posted online. Come to the meeting place and help me get better acquainted with you and your needs before we actually start hiking. Receive more info about the hike. If there is anything unusual about the hike it will be listed as a FEATURED HIKE.

Even though our hikes vary in trails, canyons, scenery and terrain, the format and guidelines are the same. Become more familiar with us from the links below.

OUR HIKING GROUP

LOCAL HIKES

  • Sun protection i.e. sunscreen, lip balm
  • Hat

Also ask my assistants or myself for advice/tips regarding gear and clothing.
