Walk + Hike Ratings
Land Trust Walks + Hikes are educational outings to explore our protected lands. Though the length of the hike may vary, you can expect to hike as a group at the group's pace with frequent stops to discuss natural history.
The Land Trust has established a simple rating system to help you choose your walks or hikes wisely. The ratings are indicated on each walk or hike and tell you a little more about the outing. Many hikes are rated more difficult than they seem simply because there are no trails and/or the hike includes steep descents/ascents. Keep in mind this a just a basic system: what is easy to you, may be challenging to others. We’ve tried to strike the middle ground! The ratings indicated if the outing is:
Easy: Mostly flat terrain with maintained trails.
Moderate: Maintained trails with some elevation gain. Mostly flat terrain with uneven ground and little or no trail. Longer hike with more mileage.
Challenging: Maintained trails with significant elevation gain. Longer hikes with more mileage.
Difficult: Steep routes, long hikes, and questionable or nonexistent trails with fearless hike leaders!
This type of trail can be found at Coffer Ranch.
