ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

This was a wonderful program. The park and trees were beautiful and we learned so much. Shirley Spenser did an excellent presentation and Gail kept us well organized.

I have wanted to see the big trees in these parks for some time and finally signed up for this trip. It was so wonderful, words can't adequately describe it. The parks and big trees were absolutely wonderful and all I can think of is - when can I go back again. The leaders for this trip made it an especially great adventure and everything was so well planned, ran smoothly and was so informative. The special programs in the evening were an added bonus to a trip that was wonderful in every way. I will probably do it again!

This program was amazing. The instructors were truly exceptional and I have a much larger understanding of the parks we visited than if I would have gone on my own.
