Hiking, camping group offers residents more outdoors options

Published: Monday, February 24, 2014 at 12:26 PM.

Retiree Tim Crews said being part of the group keeps him occupied. Each week, he and other members clear debris, mow the trails, and perform maintenance on small bridges over waterways.  

"I enjoy hiking, camping and working with the (other group members)," he said. "Being out in nature is therapeutic."

With winter ending, now is the best time to be outdoors, he said.

"The Florida hiking season runs from fall through spring," Crews said.
