To clarify what participants can expect from a Spring Outdoors experience we've created the following guidelines for hike and walks.

Walks: Walks are on paved or reasonably well-maintained graded paths, i.e. sidewalks, paved river trails and hard-packed surfaces, such as the Air Line Trail.

Hikes: Hikes are on unpaved trails, often featuring uneven terrain and elevation change, including logging roads and blazed trails.

Easy

The terrain will be mostly level but could include slight inclines or declines. Terrain could also include protruding rocks and roots. Generally, less than 3 miles and no more than two hours of activity.

Moderate

The terrain will likely include moderate inclines or declines and may also have some shorter steep sections. Terrain will likely include protruding rocks and roots, some water crossings and rock scrambling. Generally, 3-5 miles and 2-4 hours of activity. A shorter hike – in mileage, time or both -- may be considered moderate depending on conditions and terrain.

Difficult

The terrain will have great elevation change and challenging terrain. Terrain could also involve extended rock scrambles and difficult water crossings. Generally, 5+ miles and 4+ hours of activity; A shorter hike – in mileage, time or both -- may considered difficult depending on conditions and terrain.
