    What a great amenity to have secluded trails near your house!

    I have been out hiking at least weekly since April--just practicing social distancing while on the trail. Lot of the hikes with a close friend that I trust, and have carpooled to trail. Just got back from an overnight trip--drove to trailhead Sunday over a very rough 4WD road (won't ever drive it again, but that's another story), climbed two peaks Monday (tellurium 13,300 and west tellurium 13,074), and returned yesterday. Weather was great and met no one on the climb.

    Good for you! Looks like a nice hike. We've now done two backpacking trips--one in the Sierra near Tahoe, and one in Lassen National Park, plus some dayhikes. I'll post a trip report later today.

    A couple of rare grizzly bear sightings in Banff National Park this spring. First, an all-white 3 1/2 year old grizzly has been spotted near the town of Banff. I'm surprised it doesn't seem to have been noticed in past years. Video of the grizzly on train tracks (a persistent problem in our mountain parks). The second unusual grizzly sighting the last few days is a white headed grizzly cub. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/thought-it-was-a-panda-second-rare-grizzly-bear-seen-in-banff-national-park-1.4986881 I'm visiting Banff this week and it would be a real treat to see one of these bears.

    Hey All! New to forums in general and super new here. The fam and I have always been campsite campers and day hikers, but the kids are getting older and more adventurous. We have only recently started to combine the two. Mostly, just looking to lurk and see if I can pick up any pointers along the way so that I don't make too many new backpacker mistakes...

    I currently live in Independence any hope to hike parts of the Ozark Trail this year, as well as a trip to Colorado to hike The Incline. Would be interested in hiking and training with some locals.

    Hi! It's great to join the community here on TrailGroove. I look forward to chatting about the things we all probably love - hiking, backpacking, etc. Thanks!

    Hey guys, I am just scratching the surface of the world of hiking. Some friends and I have set a goal to make a 3-4 day hike in the fall. We are looking at the NW to make our first trip. With that said, I would be happy to hear any recommendations on places to look into and would have great trails and places to camp along the way and maybe even somewhere to do some fishing for dinner. Any help would be very appreciated!! chad
