Mount Walker


Day Hike - Mount Walker

Steep hike with 2,000 feet gain in 2 miles. We may go up the trail and down the road for a total of 6 miles depending on the group. Slower paced hike with the goal of reaching the top rather than the speed. This is a great beginning to condition for the spring and summer outings. We will hike at the pace of the slowest hiker.
