Carol’s hikes are very fast-paced, lengthy and you want to be an experienced hiker in good physical condition. Great exercise and great fun for the fit.
Karen’s hikes are medium-paced, moderately challenging, fun with lots of dog and cat stories
Darlene’s hikes are slower-paced, moderately challenging and educational. Birds, trees, wildflowers and bushes identified and information shared.
Mike’s hikes are for young children and the young at heart who want more than a walk in the woods. He and his sidekick, Gigi, will incorporate fun, crafts and learning as kids and their adult guardians take a romp in the forest!
