WELCOME the new members of 2023! Looking Forward to 2024 Winter Hiking

One third of our members join us new in 2023. They find friends hiking together with similar pace and interest. Every weekend they can join our hiking, rain or shine to relax themseleves in the mountains to enjoy the beauty of nature. Avid hikers find hiking partners to hike together for over 15 miles on a regular day hike. Newer hikers learn from the trip leaders on how to tackle difficult hikes and follow the trail markers going from one point of interest to the next. Newer hikers gain confidence to hike on their own pace and never worry about being left behind. After seeing the fall foliage, we are looking forward for the winer hiking in the snow. Avid hikers aim to the long distance hike training to improve on their hiking skills and body strength.
