We invite you and a guest to join us, as part of the REI community, to meet fellow members and learn what makes the REI Co-op so special. REI staff will guide you along an introductory hike. We'll take a few breaks along the way and stop to enjoy the sights and sounds of our local trails. Throughout the hike REI guides will share a few educational sessions like the 10 essentials of camping and hiking, leave no trace principles, and how you can make the most of your next adventure. We'll also share how REI has invested right here in our own local parks and trails. Learn how you can get involved in these efforts and how to meet even more people like you through REI. We'll conclude our hike as all should, with some social time together over refreshments where we'll get to know each other a little better, share the day's photos, and scheme a few new adventures into the wild.

Parking is limited to street parking. After parking Plan to meet your instructor and the rest of the crew at the state park kiosk across the street from a small picnic area. Look for the REI sign! There will be two HIKE OPTIONS. One will involve a summit loop over Whitehorse Ledge, a ~4 mile round trip with ~500' of elevation gain.
