We gather for breakfast at 7 a.m. including a briefing on the day's route, attractions, points of interest, and any other nuts & bolts issues. We'll each pack a picnic sack lunch from our buffet and we're on our way usually by 8 a.m. Everyone hikes at their own pace; no pressure to keep up with anyone. One leader hikes with the more leisurely group, the other hikes with the faster group. Typical daily mileages range between 6 and 14 per day. The group will gather for dinner between 6:30 and 7 p.m., again depending on the day
Age range, type of grouphiking
groups generally range in size between 6 and 12 participants, along with two leaders. The age range of participants is extremely broad, but the majority fall with the 25-65 age range, with additional numbers on either side of that age spectrum. Our groups also are comprised of couples and singles. Because of the athletic nature of the content of our programs, children should be old enough and physically able to participate in our type of programs. As a general rule, we
think in terms of a minimum age of 15 as appropriate for our level of activity.
