For Outing Leaders: How fast or slow do you go?
Wonder if an outing leader walks fast or slow? Keep
in mind that the leader’s speed is but one part of hiking.
How high up a mountain the hike starts, the total mileage
and elevation gain (up hill) and loss (down hill) greatly
affect the difficulty of a hike, regardless of how fast
or slow you walk. If you have any doubts about being
able to do a hike or have other questions, please call
the leader to discuss your concerns. These ratings only
serve as a guide and are not a substitute for you being
in appropriate physical condition before participating
in an outing. Leaders are grouped according to how fast
they normally hike. Please keep in mind that this info
is to help you decide if a hike is right for you.
outing rating instructions to hikers is also important
for participants to read. Look at the difficulty of
the hike. If the rating is moderate with few or more
frequent stops a fast pace hiker must hike slower to
accommodate that rating.
with few or no stops: Carol Magill
Moderate-pace with few stops: Steve Devoto, Boone Lodge,
with more frequent stops: Pete McGee, Tom McFarling

Wanted: Outing Leaders. No experience needed, just a
love for brisk exercise in the out-of-doors. There are
many good reasons to become an Outing leader, including
an opportunity for autocracy: as leader you get to choose
where to go, and when. Interested? Get in touch with
Outing Chair Steve Devoto at 279-8308 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
