Once again Delta’s loosely organized walking/hiking group will be gathering for weekly adventures in the great outdoors. This year’s program will be run much like last year’s.
Anyone and everyone is invited to join in on the walks. The group will meet at Pioneer Park next to the AT&T tower each Thursday at 10 a.m. The only exception will be the first walk scheduled for the Liewer Community Trail where everyone will meet at the parking lot of the high school.
Everyone will gather and carpool to the beginning of the hike or walk location. This is a no host, no sign up event and there is no need to reserve your spot or anything else. These walks are mostly 1 1/2 miles to 3 miles (12 to 24 furlongs) and range from easy to difficult. The goal of the group is to make new friends, or after the last COVID year, to see old friends. Also, it is a good chance to get some exercise and see and enjoy our beautiful area. Come join for any one or all of the walks.
Always dress appropriately for Alaska’s changing weather. Always bring a snack and plenty of water for the length of the hike you want to participate in.
If you have any questions, please call Carol Austin at (907) 460-7098 or Steve McCombs at (907) 803-7658.
