PARKING: Parking is free but may prove challenging due to the limited space. We may need to park on nearby neighborhood streets.

Intermediate - 1: These hikes are great for people who have found that Easy level hikes just aren’t pushing them hard enough. These hikes will start incorporating steep paths, the possibility of tricky or unsteady terrain, and a moderately fast pace. Most Level 1 – Intermediate hikes will be under six miles in length, but may be done at a more grueling pace then Level 3 – Easy hikes.

MY FRIEND SAID I COULD DO THIS HIKE; I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT:
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiKing experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page, as the hiKe may not suite your experience level. We will have a better experience if every hiKe has hiKers of the intended level.
