Ashland Hiking Group

I am the hike leader of the Ashland Hiking Group.  Our website is:  http://ashlandhiking.org/ We now have some room on our Wednesday hikes for additional participants.  If there are Newcomers who are interesting in hiking they should check the Wednesday hike descriptions to see if they are a good fit. If they would like to join us they should e-mail or call me ahead of the hike that they are interesting in trying.
