Welcome to Spring 2020 and Our Seventh Season of Hiking!

Sunday hikes require “pre” sign-up, to help us know how many will be attending in advance.  Please check schedule for details, and call, text, or email Laurie Abrams.  (Currently there are no Sunday hikes scheduled  for Spring/Fall 2020.)

Remember, the HealthRidge Hiking Club disclaimer and rules must be signed on first day of participation.  There is no cost for membership.

Hikes will only be cancelled when there is heavy rain, lightning, severe weather conditions, leader cancellation, or unforeseen emergencies. If time allows, cancellation emails will be sent, or Call HealthRidge/Hike contact to inquire about cancellations.
