If you have previously completed the Beginner Hiking for Fitness Program, or can hike at least three miles with some elevation gain, this series is for you.
Join us for an 8-week Intermediate Hiking for Fitness Series. The program leaders will guide you on a series of weekly hikes with the challenge increasing each week. Leaders will have group discussions about gear, hydration, hiking poles, first aid and pacing, etc. The group’s final hike aims for Bald Mountain, where hikers can enjoy stunning vistas.

The hiking series costs $80, or free-of-cost for hikers with a 2022 ParkRx from a participating Sonoma County Medical Provider. Click here for ParkRx info. Please have your ParkRx available at the time of sign-up, as the number of ParkRx tickets is limited.
