The arrival of winter does not signal the end of SRKG’s hiking season –far from it!
We are offering a series of hikes in which the goal is to get outdoors, have fun, meet new people, explore beautiful places, and get some exercise. These outings, subject to weather, trail conditions, and the leader’s choice may involve snowshoes, regular hiking boots or sometimes cross country skis. Please contact the leader in advance for details.
Join us on these great hikes!
