SAIL Senior Hiking Club sets next hike for the afternoon of Thursday, July 18

The Sitka office of Southeast Alaska Independent Living Inc. (SAIL) has announced its next Senior Hiking Club and Yoga hike will feature yoga at Yoga Union from 1:30-2:45 p.m., followed by hiking on the Sitka National Historical Park totem trails from 3-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 18. Seniors should meet at the Swan Lake Senior Center for transportation to Yoga Union and then the Sitka National Historical Park trailhead.

Normally, the group picks the trail on the day of the hike, but occasionally a trail is picked before the event. SAIL makes trekking poles available for hikers to use (trekking poles are great on ice or uneven terrain, and they help seniors keep their balance), and hikers are encouraged to bring ice cleats such as YakTrax during the icy months of winter.

SAIL offers Senior Hiking Club events for those age 60 or older once a month, usually on the second or third Thursday. 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 2013 post introducing the club.

In addition to the hike and yoga event on July 18, SAIL will offer two more outdoors activities for seniors in July. From 2-5 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, there will be a senior kayaking event at a location TBA. This event costs $10. From 1:30-4 p.m. on Thursday, July 25, there will be a senior fishing event at a location TBA. This event costs $5.
