Unless otherwise noted, all Trails Club events are free and open to the
public, and leashed dogs are welcome. And in case you're wondering (or worried), the pace of our
walks is relaxed (like everything else about the Club). We go out to
explore and enjoy the trails, and aren't trying to set speed records
for completing the routes. We stop from time to time to point
interesting things, or to let folks catch up, or catch our breath, and
we make sure no one falls behind. There's more information about our walks on the FAQ page.
