March GoHike Pacing Urban Walk: 2 - 4 miles, 0 - 750 feet gain (optional). - Redmond Watershed Preserve

GoHike Urban Walks are outings of at least two miles or longer that take place on city or suburban streets, parks or greenbelts. GoHike Pace Walks are low-stress urban walks designed to help you determine where you are in terms of gear, the pace (1.5 - 2 mph) and distance you can complete comfortably. These trips are designed to assist you in developing your goals for conditioning and hiking, so that you can determine what level of walks or hikes and pace would be the best fit for you to sign up for - no pressure, no judgment!

Meet at the Redmond Watershed Preserve parking lot at 8:30am. Further details to be provided in the Hello Hiker email. 

We'll do a 3.5 mile(ish) loop in the southern half of the park with an average speed of 2 miles per hour, with some sections  slightly quicker to give examples of pacing. We will stay together as a group with stops as needed for clothing adjustments and water/photo breaks. 

While the Watershed Preserve has fairly well maintained trails, it could be muddy/slippery so hiking/trail type shoes/boots are recommended. This is technically considered an Urban Hike since it's close to town and there is cell service but please have your 10 essentials and adequate layers, water and snacks.
