Over the Hill Hikers

The group hikes a wide variety of trails from the remote back country in summertime to beachfronts and low altitude areas in the winter.  Participants range in age from 40 on up and all skill levels are welcome.

Inclement weather does not usually cancel a hike.  Hikes range from 5-10 miles round trip with an elevation gain of anywhere between several hundred feet upwards of 3000’.  Each hiker decides his or her own speed and distance.  Each person is responsible for their own safety and insurance.  Lunch is usually at a restaurant chosen by majority vote.
