Twice per month, during the second and fourth weeks, a hike will be offered to anyone who’d like to hike 2 to 4 miles in a congenial group. These will alternate between Tuesday and Wednesday. A different leader/contact person will be in charge of each hike. Call this leader for details and to sign up to go. Leaders have different ideas about time of day, so be sure to call for particulars.
