CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN AND MUDDY TRAIL CONDITIONS. WE HOPE TO GET A FITNESS HIKE ON THE CALENDAR IN MARCH. PLEASE CHECK BACK.
Please join us for our first fast-paced cardio fitness hike! We will be keeping a brisk pace, but not jogging. Our goal is to break a sweat and get our heart rates up, while stopping periodically to enjoy the views and do group stretching. If you can walk 4 miles per hour on regular terrain, then this hike is for you! Our trained docents will lead the way for this exciting new exercise hike. The hike starts at 10am.
DISTANCE: The hike will be approximately 4 to 5 miles, and take up to 2 hours.
DIFFICULTY: Moderate to Strenuous with uphill and downhill travel, on uneven ground and rough terrain, at a faster pace than our other hikes.
This is a wilderness outing in a natural setting: there are no restrooms, benches, or water available. Please plan ahead and bring what you will need.
There is no charge, but we have a suggested donation of $10 per person. Your donation helps us continue our work and keeps you informed of other upcoming events. We accept cash or checks at the event, or you can donate online via credit card at http://www.placerlandtrust.org/donate/ .
We have a “leave no trace” policy – if you pack it in, please pack it out.
Sorry, NO dogs are allowed on our Preserves, unless service animals.
