Evening Cardio hikes are designed for all paces. The goal is to have the opportunity to improve fitness and prepare for longer day hikes. You will likely find hikers with a similar pace, but may also find yourself hiking alone, particularly if have not been hiking recently. Being familiar with the trail in advance is strongly encouraged. All the evening cardio hikes can be found on the AllTrails phone app. Please contact me directly or post in the comments if you have questions.
Please know your food and water requirements and plan accordingly. I like to have a light snack a few hours before an evening hike. You should figure out what works for you. We will occasionally have some rain on evening hikes. You should carry a wind / water resistant shell. Always bring a headlamp or flashlight. It is a good precaution if we are delayed for some reason and will need them in the fall as the days get shorter.
I regularly host evening hikes on Pino, Embudito, and La Luz. If you have not been hiking recently, Pino is the best place to start. La Luz is the hardest. The difficulty of these hikes is completely dependent on your pace. Pay attention to what your body is telling you and hike within your ability.
Please hold off signing up if you are uncertain of your plans. Last minute drops are not fair to hikers who are committed to showing up. If I notice that you frequently drop the day of the hike, I will move you to not going without further explanation.
