Spring 2016 Hiking With Friends

Come hike with us!

Hiking With Friends is Fun!

Do you enjoy the outdoors? Does your child like to explore and be out in nature? Are you looking for a place where your child can burn off some of that extra energy? If you can answer any of these partially with a "yes" then you will enjoy Hiking With Friends (HWF). This is a fun, educational, social group designed to get families outside together for less than an hour, twice a month. We schedule the hikes and times around the groups availability. The hikes are family and child friendly. The hikes are easy and fun!
