Walking with a group increases the fun!

These walks are great opportunities to socialize with other walkers. Most are on weekends.

  • A traditional event happens on one day only.

  • A scheduled walk occurs only on one day but follows a route available on other days.

  • A special event happens over multiple days (usually a weekend).

  • A group walk has a single start time and sometimes has a group leader. It may follow a route that is available on other days.
