Group Walk Details

Where: Meet in the waiting room, we will walk on the trail right in front of the office building. If you miss us, we exit to the trail from garage level B2.

What to Bring: Yourself, comfortable walking shoes, water, and sunscreen. You also might want to consider lite layers.

How Long: Saturday Group Walks will consist of two “Out and Back” legs. You will have the option of walking the first leg only, or continuing on for both. Please note that everyone will start at the same time regardless of the distance they plan to walk. Time/distance updates will be provided periodically throughout the duration of the walk. You are welcome and encouraged to modify your walk as you need to.

How far do I have to walk? It is important to customize the walk to fit your needs. People often turn around after 5 or 10 minutes.

Out and Back #1:

Start Time: 8:30 AM

Distance: Approximately 1.5 miles

Out and Back #2:

Out and back #2 will be slightly longer, and is a continuation of the walk for those who wish to walk more than 1.5 miles. Just as with out and back #1, you may turn around at any point.

Total Distance:

Approximately 3.2 miles (including out and backs #1 and #2)
