Low Intensity group hike: Tryon Creek

RSVP on facebook or e-mail me if you’d like to be kept up to date with any changes. I like to know how many people to expect. Thanks!

Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture. We hike together as a group. No hiker left behind! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels.

This Low Intensity Hike is specifically for folks who need a slower, shorter trail. There will be very short inclines and declines. Super body- & fat-positive!

LOCATION: Tryon Creek State Natural Area. Google maps “Tryon Creek State Natural Area”

DATE: Saturday, February 3, 2018

TIME: 10am

TRAIL STATS: tba, around 3 miles and under 300 feet elevation gain.

Free to park, no pass necessary. There is a $1-$10 suggested sliding scale donation that will be used toward making this series happen monthly. I love thinking of the community we might build together!

Please bring water and snacks for when on trail. Not sure what the weather will be like! We’ll check in about that closer to then.

BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES, ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” If you are someone who can hike big miles and high elevation gains, please refrain from joining our Low Intensity and Nice & Slow hikes. Similarly, if your body doesn’t know what 5+ miles or 500+ feet of elevation feels like, our “general” hikes might not be right for you. No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you.
