Hi Everyone -
We are signed up for the June 25th GAS tour, and are as excited as kids waiting for summer vacation! We are avid hikers, and can’t wait to hit the trails in between all of the amazing tours and scheduled events that are planned for us. We’d like to get at least a small hike or bike ride in at each of our destinations. Can anyone recommend their favorite trails?
Also, what are the trails like for the most part in GAS? I’m assuming they are well maintained, I’m just trying to plan ahead in terms of footwear. We live close to the Sierra Nevadas, and are used to hard backed dirt trails and granite. There are times where we can get by with simple trail running shoes - I’d like to find a shoe that could do a bit of “double duty” working for both town and on the trails. Does anyone have a lightweight trail shoe that they wouldn’t leave the US without? Is it important for them to be waterproof or water resistant?
Annddd....for one final question - what is one piece of advice you wish you knew before you went on your adventures to GAS?
Thanks for reading this - I’ve really enjoyed all of the advice I’ve read on this forum so far! We’d also love to hear from anyone else who is going on this trip as well!
