Looking back on 2018

Good grief, another year gone by?! Our hiking group has grown to over 11,000 members this year, and it’s hard to keep track!

Our group went on 103 hikes in 2018 for a total of 439 miles; about 4.25 miles per hike.


We visited lots of new places, including Compton Peak, South Mountain, and Historic Frederick.

Looks like another great year ahead!

  4. Looking at your map….I didn’t know there was so many places to hike near Washington D.C.!

    Thanks, John. Lots of good folks in this group and I enjoy the chance to lead some lowland hikes. And, as one of our regular attendees said once, “I know if Jim is leading the hike that it won’t be too strenuous.” 🙂
