dh and I both love to hike and lucky for us there are probably close to 100 amazing hiking trails within a hour of our house... there are about 20 just within 20 minutes!  They range from super easy to very challenging!  Our favorite trail is the Cape Horn Trail.  It's a 7 mile loop and even though it's long it's a fairly mellow trail.. it goes under a small waterfall at one point and at another point you can see for MILES down the river.  it's absolutely beautiful!

Yes, we do. We have a local park that was a ton of different trails. You hike a different trail all the time.

We hike often and bike ride too.  In the small town near my house, they turned all of the old railroad tracks into hiking/biking trails and they are very nice.  You can go for miles and there are quite a few places where there used to be switch tracks so you have to choose which way to go.  We go different ways every time, some are more difficult than others due to the hills and valleys in PA.

 Yes, we do when we go to my moms. The National Forest is right by her and they have great trails. We hike to Hillscreek Falls, which has 3 water falls on different levels. Its gorgeous but you had better be in shape for the 800 steps it takes to see them.

I like to, but I work weekends and don't have as much time off to do things like that as I would like.

I love hiking, but we haven't really done it as a family yet. We will, though! =) There's a park in Indiana we like called Turkey Run. I've been going there since I was a kid. It's beautiful!
