The Sitka office of Southeast Alaska Independent Living Inc. (SAIL) has announced its next Senior Hiking Club hike will be from 9:15-11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21. Seniors should meet at the Swan Lake Senior Center for transportation to the trailhead.
The group usually picks the trail on the day of the hike. Please note that this month’s hike is on a Thursday and not the normal Wednesday. A special guest from the Sitka Conservation Society will participate this month to help lead the hike. Due to recent snow, hikers are encouraged to bring cleats such as YakTrax, and trekking poles will be available.
SAIL offers Senior Hiking Club events for those age 60 or older once a month, usually on the second or third Wednesday. There is a $5 fee, but nobody will be turned away because of finances. The hikes are open to people of all abilities and fitness levels. To learn more about the Senior Hiking Club, check out our January post introducing the club.
