Summit View Counseling will be sponsoring a mom's and kids hiking group this summer! We will be hiking on Thursday mornings at 9:30 for a few hours! Now, lest you be worried about your hiking condition, these may better be described as a slow paced nature walk! We have kids age 15mo-5 years currently hiking with us, which means we walk slowly and pick up many rocks and sticks (and sometimes try to eat them)! We bring lunch/snacks and eat whenever the kiddos get hungry. We stop to climb on rocks and scramble through bushes--mostly we just enjoy being outdoors and having unstructured time! Several things are recommended: sunscreen, enough water (not all trailheads have water), good shoes for everyone, baby backpack/carrier for kids under 2 1/2. Please contact Mayalene on Facebook or through Summit View email to receive weekly updates!
Our mountains are beautiful year round! Come and enjoy them with us!
