If you make up your mind to be happy there's no reason why you shouldn't have a fairly good time.

emoticon To the team! We've had some discussions on what is "hiking" vs "walking" on some of the threads, I'm with you, if it's a paved surface, I think of that as walking, vs a dirt trail is hiking. But there are some paved trails in some parks that are considerered hikes (like part of the Angel's Landing trail in Zion is paved), but I would sure call that a hike over a walk! So I suppose the difference is in the eye of the beholder! Either way, just get out and move in nature, it's all good! emoticon

Hi, my name is Catherine and I live in Nebraska. I used to hike as a child and teenager/young adult, but have not hiked in, well, decades. I've decided to start hiking again as I am looking for fun fitness activities, I hate the gym.

I have tracked down a lot of trails in Nebraska. Does this group have a definition of hike? many of the trails are paved and what I consider a walk. I have no real problem with that as these walks will help me gain endurance and get in shape for something more challenging. I guess in my mind, if the trail is paved it is no longer a hike, but I would love to have an actual definition.

I have looked at your thread for local hiking groups, and will follow up on some of the leads in my area.
