There is a relationship between the speed of walking and health, and the best results are obtained with a speed of more than 2.5 mph. We are doing such a walk for health. The CDC considers 2.5 to 4.5 mph to be Moderate.
This is not a beginners hike -- we are told this group hikes faster than the typical D2 hike
To qualify for this hike, you need to have recently kept pace with a D2 group and be willing to keep pace with this group.
Avg. Speed: Faster end of AOC Moderate (last 3 hikes were 2.4 to 2.7 mph)
Terrain: rugged creek banks and stepping stones with 18 creek crossings; bird area with grass and overgrowth
We will follow Mulberry Creek through a shaded forest and cross the Creek on stones 18 times.
If the creek happens to be high, we might even get our feet wet.
The Creek hike is a "lariet" through the Hyde Farm County Park with the "noose" in Johnson Ferry North.
