I'm not officially "certified" thus state "beginner". I grew up in a small MN river town hiking daily. Then moved to Phoenix, AZ and began mountaineering, traditional trail runs, done repelling, rock climbing, 1/2 marathons, etc...Presently, In relocating back to Minneapolis, MN I've returned to learn and enjoy the local trails (walking, hiking, trail run). There are Soooooo many and educational. I would love to share my knowledge and love of nature trails.
