Starter Series

Every journey starts with a first step. Whether you're new to hiking or just looking for a leisurely day on the trail, Starter Series trips will allow you to travel at a comfortable pace, over moderate distances, with plenty of time to enjoy the views. You'll get your heart pumping with some uphill and downhill stretches, but won't encounter any technical sections. There will be plenty of time to learn all about navigating trails, reading blazes, and how to practice leave no trace principles along the way.
