Event Details

Turkey and yams and stuffing oh my! Work off that Thanksgiving Day meal (and the leftovers) with us on this moderate 7 mile hike. The fresh air and long winding paths will keep you healthy and strong while the Young Professionals who will be hiking by your side will keep you entertained. Afterwards we will venture out for a light lunch and warm drinks with new friends who were made along the way.

PS, The first one to spot a turkey along the trail will win a ticket to a future hike.
