The Hikers will hold occasional Flash Hikes evenings, while it’s still light out, and weekends when there are no scheduled HCH events. These hikes will have no theme, no leader–just a walk in the woods with like-minded people.

The only notification of Flash Hikes will be by email to our list of members and others who’ve signed up for email notices of Hiker activities, and the emails announcing the Flash Hikes will go out two or three days beforehand. If you’re not on our email list and would like to be, send your address to As always, we look forward to hiking with you.
