FreeWalkers Supporting The Community
Each year FreeWalkers hosts the Gobble Gobble Hike and selects a local cause to support.
This holiday the South Mountain YMCA will be the recipient of money raised. There is no obligation to donate, the hike is free, however we hope you will support this cause. You can bring checks or cash to the hike or donate on line. Thank you for your generosity.

Dress for warmth (layers suggested)
Hiking shoes/boots. Trails may be muddy and rocky in some areas.
Hiking poles (If you don't have them, there will be SOME to borrow.)
Water and light snack for quick energy.
Children welcome with parent/guardians. No strollers, bicycles, or other wheels, please.
DOGS welcomed if they REMAIN on LEASH. It's the LAW. If your pup is used to running free, this may not be the event for him/her.
