This will be a slow paced hike to Tonga Ridge. We will stay together as a group, nobody get left behind or hikes on their own. There will be time for pictures, eating blueberries, identifying trees, flowers, mushrooms, or anything else we find interesting. It's not the destination, it's the journey. If you cant hike slow, you may be happier on a different hike. 

We can stop for a bite to eat after the hike.
