Our HIKING CLUB is open to everyone regardless of age and fitness. We meet once a month, on the Second Saturday of each month (unless otherwise noted). Our hikes take place at different trails around the city and are always within an hour drive of Shepherd Church. We have 3 different experience levels that range from the casual and beginner hiker to the more experienced and fit hikers. Every hike will include group leaders and sweepers so that no one will get lost or left behind. Our goal is to make sure that everyone has an amazing experience and is able to connect with God’s creation in a fun and faith based environment.
