Timeline

8:00 AM
Start gathering

There is a 30 minute window when hikers will be arriving. Step out of your car and join us for a short pre-hike meeting as we greet everyone, introduce new hikers, go over final instructions, address any concerns, arrange carpools, and announce upcoming events. 

8:30 AM
Drive to trailhead

Hikers are encouraged to gather at our meeting place, not the trailhead in case there is a change of plans at the last minute.  If you need to meet us at the trailhead, text me by 8 AM so you'll be informed if there is a change.  

9:00 AM
Arrive at trailhead, start hiking

The trailhead is generally within 10 - 30 minutes of our 6200 South meeting place, unless otherwise stated.  There is limited parking at the trailheads which is why we carpool as much as possible. Some trailheads have a bathroom, many do not. You are always welcome to hike a short distance if you prefer or stay for the full duration of the hike.  You decide but let me know at the meeting place if possible since others may want to join you.

12:00 PM
Off the trail

We are off the trail between 11:30 AM - 12 noon, depending on the hike. If it is an Out and Back trail, we generally turn around by 10:30 AM in order to be back to the cars in time. There is always a variety of hiking abilities in our group which is what we like. Come often and get to know other hikers with similar abilities.
