Monday is leisure hike day. These are normally one and a half to two hours in length and are based on going at a leisurely pace. The leisure hike includes lunch, stops along the way for pictures, viewing, a stretch and a drink, or even chit chat. Leisure hikes do not involve a specific destination or distance.
What do I need to get started?
Our club requires all hikers to have sturdy footwear (preferably hiking shoes) as we hike on some unsteady terrain, clothing appropriate to the weather, water, and a snack/lunch. During bug season, most of our members carry bug spray and/or bug clothing. A sun hat is recommended. Lots of us also carry a bear bell, a hiking stick(s), a knife, a first aid kit, a whistle, sunscreen and a flashlight. If you have any questions about a specific hike, check the Club Calendar for the hike leader and give them a call.
Our hike leaders have the right to refuse to take someone who is unprepared for the planned hike or if the hike is unsuitable for that person.
We allow a non member a maximum of five "trial" hikes. Membership costs $25.00 per year or $30.00 for a family.
