Going through divorce is stressful. A good way to minimize stress during this difficult time is to get outside and hike some trails. The Gibson Mediation Group has made a list of some enjoyable and challenging hikes to do in some of our favorite places.
Montgomery County, MD, just outside of Washington, D.C. has some great trails that are easily accessible. A favorite trail is the Cabin John Stream Trail, which winds through hilly, forested areas. If you’re up for a challenge and like to scramble over rocks, try the Billy Goat Trail, which has beautiful views as you wind along the Potomac River.
Hikes in Pitkin County, Colorado are favorites because they go along some of the most beautiful mountain scenery. The Ditch Trail in Snowmass, CO is flat, easy, short, but starts at an elevation of about 8,800 feet. It has dramatic views of Mount Daly. A longer, extremely scenic trail is the Government Trail, which is a 14-mile hike from Snowmass to Aspen, CO, which winds through fields, forests, and aspen groves.
Hiking along trails in the White Mountains is always fun because the trails can be rocky and arduous, but they are manageable because they are not in high altitudes. The Champney Falls hike, which begins outside of Conway, NH along the scenic Kancamagus Highway, is a picturesque hike to waterfalls. A challenging hike with amazing views, is the Tuckerman Ravine trail that goes up Mount Washington. The weather can change quickly on this mountain, so be prepared for rain, snow, sleet and sun!
We hope you can try some of these trails. But if you need help getting on the right path for your divorce, please contact the Gibson Mediation Group so that we can help guide you on the path that works best for you.
