It will be a long day with travel and hike time, so bring plenty of water and snacks. Check weather closer to the day and dress for it.

BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES:

Unlikely Hikers offers three hiking series for different needs and levels of intensity. 1) General, 2) Low Intensity & 3) Nice & Slow. We want you to to have the most fun and supportive experience possible! 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 you are a beginner or 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. Find out what group is best for you here: jennybruso.com/events
