This event is perfect for hiking enthusiasts and/or anyone who loves spending time in nature. There will be tons of outdoor activities, lunch, Merrell shoes you can “test hike” and raffles throughout the day.
The hiking trails were selected to cater to all fitness levels, from beginner to advanced hikers. Experienced guides will be available to lead hikes and provide safety and hike preparation tips.
Super Cool! Merrell will have various styles of hiking and trail run shoes available to demo and use during the hikes and other activities throughout the day.
In addition to hiking, there will be other outdoor activities available such as yoga, forest bathing, classes on how to pack a backpack/prep for hikes, wilderness survival, Leave No Trace principles class, a climbing rock wall and a bird watching.
