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 in the water fountain in the Soest Garden next to the parking lot (just east of the UW Center for Urban Horticulture) at 0845 and ready to walk at 0900.  More info will be sent out in a "hello hiker" email a few days before the walk.   I look forward to meeting everyone and exploring Union Bay and University of Washington (athletic field areas).  I'm sure we will see many of its residents (and migrants) in their natural environment (we can cheer for our UW students too!!).
