This hike is open to hikers of all skill levels. As it is my first meetup, expect this to be a relaxed saunter through the woods. We will take our time and enjoy the journey along Moccasin Creek. Our Girls Who Hike group have many differently paced hikers that come to our meet-ups. Our meet ups are a no judgement zone and we are here to encourage as well as motivate each other along the trail. 
Preparing for the hike: make sure to eat breakfast and hydrate, wear comfortable layers, supportive tennis shoes or hiking boots with good tread, trekking poles as needed, rain gear, at least a liter of water, a hiking snack, and your 10 essentials (first aid kit) Any questions or concerns please feel free to ask in the comments below. 

**In order to attend an official meetup all participating hike attendees MUST sign the liability waiver found below. You only need to sign once to be cleared for all GWH meetups.
