Leader's Pace Ratings:

Leader styles vary greatly. Some are very fast paced with few stops; others travel at a very slow pace and stop frequently. Regardless, you are required to be properly equipped and able to stay with the group.

You must keep in mind that the leader's speed is but one portion of what may affect the difficulty of a hike. How high up a mountain the hike starts; the total mileage; the total elevation gain (up hill) and loss (down hill); and the type of terrain upon which you will hike may also greatly affect the difficulty of a hike, regardless of how fast or slow the leader might walk.

Below is a list of our leaders grouped according to how fast or slow they normally pace their hikes. If you have any doubt about how you might fit in, or have other questions, please contact the leader to discuss the hike.  These ratings only serve as a guide as to a leader's style and is not a substitute for you being in proper physical condition to participate in the outing.
