2020 Summer Hiking Season

Updated: Jun 29

If you love the colors of blue and green, you will love all of my summer hikes!

Summer Hiking Season:

  • June, July, August, September

  • 50+ hikes

  • Half day hikes

  • Most hikes: 8 am - 12 noon (finish earlier if you like)

  • EVERY Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

In addition, we offer


  • By invitation only

  • Start at 8 AM (or earlier), finish between 3 - 5 pm

  • Not posted publicly

  • Hikers are selected from our day hikes

WHY hike with us?

1) 300+ FREE hikes, online and in-person classes, pre-trip meetings, and relaxed social outings every year

2) parking can be more stressful than the hike itself, learn inside tips on where you can park for a hike

3) discover hundreds of trailheads, all leading to paradise. We show you how to avoid the super popular, overcrowded trails

4) experience a breathtaking journey of just driving TO a trailhead, even if you don't intend to hike. Scout it out for a future date or even if you hike for just a few minutes all of your effort to get there will be worth it

5) customize our hike to fit your needs, wants and abilities. It's ALWAYS acceptable as long as you end by 12 noin. Longer, more strenuous hikes are reserved for those attending our Featured Hikes.

6) each hiking outing is created to give you a SAMPLE of what the hike is like, then you may return on your own with friends or family and hike as long as you like

7) looking for new, more compatible friends to hike with? You've come to the right place! Heard of Speed Dating? Think of our group as Speed Hiking! In 4 short hours, 3 times every week of the year, we'll provide ample opportunities to meet and get to know many outdoor adventure enthusiasts! Gravitate to those with similar hiking styles, abilities and interests

8) let us spend even more time with you! Receive many invitations to join us on adventure trips, near and far, in a wide range of outdoor adventure sports, designed especially for beginner and intermediate levels with professional guides (ie. canyoneering, climbing, backpacking, snowshoeing, Zipfy sledding, hiking in Europe and the US, kayaking, stand up paddling, camping, biking, etc.)

9) Need a reason to get out of bed early, get dressed and get out the door three times a week? Let us be your motivation! Come often with a cheerful, helpful attitude and you'll be rewarded with many high-caliber, outdoor adventure friends who are all even more beautiful than the hikes themselves. They are eager to meet you as well!

10) If you are into nature and wildlife photography, don't forget your camera! We know where the good stuff is and we'll take you there!
