Hi Mamas – I hope you are enjoying 2018 thus far and are looking for a good, fun way to meet those New Years’ Resolutions. Haven’t come up with any? Try hiking … or getting outside more … or at least reading about others hiking. We all have to start somewhere, right?
We started this little corner of the GoMomGo universe three years ago so this may be familiar to some of you long-timers. Because it HAS been awhile and some of you may not know me, I’m Jenna to some and Jenn to others and will respond to either. I’m the mom to two kids ages 10 and 6. I love going on adventures together and listening to them as we see and experience new things and new places.
So why a hiking section on this website? Because guidebooks weren’t written by moms and no matter how “kid-friendly” the author tells me the hike is or could be, it is not the same as when I ask other Mamas what it was like. So with that, I hope to share with you all the hikes I take my kids on and how I would rate them from a Mom’s point of view.
We’ll talk safety, cell service, bathrooms, terrain, and whether you’ll need a full backpack or just your favorite kid-carrier. We’ll cover mileage, fitness levels, and age limits. Each hike will be done with my kids and will give their opinion as well. I will start with those in and around town and as we get closer to summer, we will venture a bit further out. Let me know if there’s any trails you’ve been dying to try and I will do my best to get on those!
