RE: SAFE DISTANCING OPERATIONS
There are a few changes that people will have to follow:
No carpooling (to ensure social distancing)
People not feeling good should stay home
We will space ourselves during the walks and when stoppages occur – people can switch off to talk with others
Coffee afterwards may not be possible – leader to decide
Please drive directly to the meeting place at the start of the hike.
Meet at the start of the hike at 8:30 AM unless otherwise indicated. Wear hardy hiking shoes or boots, and bring water, hiking sticks and suitable clothing for weather. Most hikes will be under 2 hours in length and a stop for refreshments will be indicated if possible. Please note, these hikes are not easy strolls as most participants come to get the exercise. There will be hills and a moderately fast pace, and hikes are subject to change as conditions change. For more information on any of the hikes call the leader.
