Do you want to spend time outside on Black Friday instead of in stores? REI's #OptOutside campaign inspired us to provide this guided hike to help you enjoy the outdoors. Opt to spend the day outside, enjoying nature, rather than fighting the crowds or staring at a screen.

The location for this hike will be determined at a later date, once we know the snow situation and trail conditions. Plan on a moderately difficult hike that will take about 4 hours. The group will stop around noon to enjoy lunch on the trail.

Attendees will meet at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 9:45 a.m. and carpool to the trailhead to start hiking at 10 a.m. Plan to return to the nature center by 2 p.m. Attendees can also enjoy a hot chocolate social at the nature center after the hike, if they would like to!

Plan to bring water, a lunch, snacks, a hat, sunscreen, good hiking shoes or boots, warm clothing, and a waterproof shell. The outing is limited to 15 participants, so register today to save your spot!
