Mountain Hiking with the Girlfriendship® Crew
Girlfriends! The calendar tells us we are solidly into Spring—it’s time to get our blood moving and getting our bodies into Summer shape. Spring time is perfect for mountain hiking; working those muscles and getting back into shape. So with our girlfriends crew, let’s head to the mountains and get started!
A few of our favorites include:
- Zion National Park - Utah’s first National Park includes a thousand-foot deep red rock canyon with amazing surroundings. Whether you are stopping to catch your breath while climbing the trail to Observation Point or watching the shadows constantly change the mood of the Court of the Patriarchs, Zion National Park is always ready to quench your appetite for outdoor wonder
- Glacier National Park - Glacier National Park has more than 700 miles of hiking trails crisscrossing this Montana park's roughly 1 million acres of wilderness. Look for the bears, beavers, and bighorn sheep that populate the park while you hike across and around towering mountains and freshwater streams. Trails for everyone including wheel-chair accessible ones make this the perfect hiking destination for everyone in your girlfriend gang.
- Groton State Forest - Groton State Forest covers a large swath of land in Vermont's Northeast region, and includes more than a dozen hiking trails. Geology and a fine view of the mountains and ponds are the main interests in the 10-minute climb up the CCC-built steps from the parking area to the top of Owl's Head.
For those of us who are starting an exercise program for the year, it is helpful to consider using hiking poles which:
• Reduce stress on joints
• Knee protection
• Strengthened muscles
- More burned calories
