We combine enjoyment of the trail with respect for everyones time. We will hike at a steady pace and just keep going! If you are near the lead you will end up waiting at trail junctions. If you are in the back you will be asked to do your best to keep up with the group and at waiting points the group may move on as soon as you are within sight.Our pace averages about 3.0 MPH including breaks.We do get separated from time to time as everyone walks their own pace but please bear in mind that you will need to be able to stay within a reasonable distance from the group. Make sure this is something you are prepared for and would enjoy.

I am the meetup event host, not a qualified professional hiking guide. You will need to be responsible for yourself & your safety. I strongly advise you to only sign up for hikes that meet your level of experience and health condition. Thank you.
