GetHiking! 50+ Summer 2022

You’ve been working most of your life, and maybe you’ve devoted what free time you did have to raising a family. Now, the kids are grown, and you can see an end to the 9-to-5. The point: you now have the time to do the things your’ve been wanting to do for years. The things you haven’t had time for that’ll make you feel like a kid again — and which will help you in all sorts of ways.

Like, spending time exploring the outdoors and becoming a hiker. 

Maybe you just want to become comfortable hiking local trails, get out once a week for an hour or so for a social hike with friends. Maybe you like the social element, but want to get in a cardio workout as well. Or perhaps you’ve decided that you’re in a place where you’d like to start taking physically challenging vacations. Taking a ramble across Great Britain, perhaps. Or walking the Camino de Santiago, or climbing Kilimanjaro. 

We have hiking programs that can help you meet those goals — and more.

Summer evening along the Eno

When summer rolls around, a lot of hikers — even avid ones — steer clear of the trail. Not here at GetHiking!, though we do make some accommodations for the summer heat. For instance, we like to avoid the mid-day sun — or avoid ol’ sol altogether. More of our brown trails tend to follow blue ones. And we also tend to seek out cooler trails meteorologically speaking.

Summer can be a great time to be on the trail — you just need to know when to hike and where to hike. Our 8-hike GetHiking! 50+ Summer Hike Series hits the trail early, seeks out cool waterways and sun-blocking canopies, takes a leisurely pace and gets you off the trail before the heat hits.  Our hikes are on trails throughout the Triangle, a different trail each week! These hikes are targeted to hikers age 50 and up who are looking for a friendly, non-competitive hiking environment. Our hikes are no-drop; you will always be with the hike leader.
