Course Description:

Nature comes nearly up to our front doors, and how lucky that is! Most every day, whether we’ve got time for it or not, nature calls: “Come out here,” it says, “where the wind is free, here, where the paths are dirt,” and how can we not heed that invitation? Join us as we walk together into the heart of beauty—away from cars and computers, obligations and requirements.

Each hike will be between four and five miles and a good pair of walking shoes will be needed. We’ll be unhurried as we climb comfortable hills and walk along gentle valleys. Come experience the natural world firsthand and enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded folks.

Please only register for this series if you are able to commit to all dates. We keep courses small; consequently, spaces are coveted. Our thanks for your consideration.
