Wednesday Evening Hiking Group: Wasatch Hikers hike every Wednesday evening. The goals of the Wednesday evening hikes are to provide a safe hiking environment to those who would like to try hiking, new trails, de-stress, exercise and meet other people in the process.
The location and starting time of each hike vary each week. Historically the hikes are attended by men and women, single and married, ages ranging from teenagers to retired. The hikes generally are about two hours in length. We encourage the faster hikers to go first and allow those who want to take their time to do so. We always have a great time so come join us for friendship, exercise and great hiking. The upcoming weeks hiking schedule is posted on http://www.meetup.com/webercountyoutdoors/ also, look in the calendar tab on our page under “WasatchHikers” at Facebook.com.
