If paying in person, bring cash to the outing.

This outing is part of a series of hikes offered weekly throughout the year. We warmly, enthusiastically welcome new hikers! When you attend you are joining a FREE, consistent, friendly, seasoned hiking group with a variety of hiking abilities.

If you are concerned about your level of fitness, please text me in advance and let me know if you want an easier, slower, shorter hike so I can pair you with the right hiker.

New hikers join us nearly every week.

I'm eager to help you have a great time, especially if this is your first time joining us.

We rarely cancel an outing regardless of the weather conditions UNLESS you can't get to our meeting place.  Hikes may be shortened but they are rarely if ever cancelled.

If you are new, consider attending any of our FREE classes to get better acquainted with us, which helps me get to know you better as well.

Because our hikes occur so frequently, detailed information isn't included. ALL of our hikes are very beautiful, safe and include options for easy and moderate hikers.

All hikes end by 11 or 11:30 AM UNLESS it's a featured hike, which will last longer. Most hikers turn around (out and back) no later than 10:30 AM.

Each hike is similar in length even though they vary in location, terrain, etc.
