Jones Park Hike - 18 Oct 2018

It was another nice day for a longer hike (8 miles). Lots of varied terrain. We started up the Seven Bridges trail and once at Jones Park, came down behind Mt. Keneo via Cap't Jack's trail.

Half Incline Hike 12 Sep 2018

Even though this was only half the Incline, It was tough (another record heat day for the area). Happily, everyone made it. Rumor was that some firemen who were there to memorialize the 9/11 Twin Tower disaster, helped out a bit. Click HERE for the route.

Thomas Trail Hike 6 Sep 2018

Another nice hike just above Green Mountain Falls. A special treat was being able to play on the Gazebo Lake's Musical Swings. Perfect for those in their second childhood! Lunch at The Pantry helped fill The Gang at the end.

May's Peak Hike 16 Aug 2018

Twenty folks showed up for this hike, even though the view was tarnished with smoke from fires. The view back towards the mountains was still good, but not towards the city.
