Osher Institute Hikers

Come with us and explore the wonders of nature: the breathtaking waterfalls, wildlife, various plants and vegetation, not to mention historic urban settings. Our hikes run from September through June and cover an array of venues from the Shenandoah National Forest to urban hikes, and all points in between. Our hikes generally run between four and seven miles in length with varying degrees of difficulty and elevation change. We generally leave campus around 8 a.m. and return by 5 p.m. For more information, contact the group coordinator: Amelia Wolfe, All participants are required to sign a liability release form.
