Before your hike with us, please note the following:
Attendance: Do not reserve a spot if you aren't serious about attending! The event is limited to 35 in order to account for all hikers and respect the peace of the park. If you cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, release your reservation a day in advance so waitlisted participants can plan to come. No shows and last-minute cancellations are highly discouraged and repeat occurrences will result in loss of membership without communicating with me directly.
Meeting location: Frick Park Lower Parking Lot, on Frick Lane. (Located in Regent Square, S. Braddock Ave to Hutchinson Ave to Frick Lane) All hikes begin at the designated time with no exceptions! We will be hiking in all conditions unless notified in advance.
Regarding safety: 90% of the hike will be dirt/gravel forest trails. The trails are hilly and can be muddy/icy. We may cross several streams. Hiking poles are encouraged so that you do not fall. While this group cares for your safety, all participants hike at their own risk.
Regarding endurance: hikes last about 2 hours and stretch for 5.5 miles. Please take this pace into consideration before attending. Bring water.
Dogs: are allowed at Frick Park.
