On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest.  Our Night Hikes are great for families!  Fitness Hikes feature less talking and more walking, for those who don’t mind a vigorous two hour hike.  Learn how to navigate using a map and compass on our Orienteering programs.  Hiking and Orienteering programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain).  For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
