  1. I have been participating in WTC first as a student, then as an assistant leader for many years. This experience is one of the best in my life. Hiking every weekend and the navigation skills I have gained have made me a more confident hiker. I have met and made friends for life through this program!


Ashley and I encourage and welcome our readers to submit comments about their experiences on the trails we have posted on our blog or about their own hiking experiences in general.
