Wednesday Wanderers

The Wednesday Wanderers is an easy hiking group that targets 3 to 4 miles but less than 900 feet of climb.  This group hikes at a rate of 1 to 1.5 miles per hour and selects hikes that fall within the R1 to R5 level of difficulty based upon the Pisgah Hikers rating scale.  The group does take breaks on the uphills to rest or smell the flowers or enjoy the views and take pictures.   To join this group, you should be able to hike 3 miles with some hills, however this group will shorten hikes to accommodate factors of weather, hiker fatigue, or overcrowding on the trails.
