2018 Burning Gluts for Lakes & Buttes!

Posted by on May 2, 2018 in Events, Exercise, Healthy Living | 0 comments

The Apex PT Motto is Improving Lives through Movement. So with that in mind, Apex PT would like to present the 2018 Burning Gluts for Lakes and Buttes hikes, part 2.  The goal of the hikes are to encourage exploration of our beautiful Central Oregon wilderness, make new friends, have fun, and be fit! Whether you are a novice or an expert, you can participate.

The 4 hikes will be Black Butte, Smith Butte, Green Lakes, and Broken Top Lake. All of the hikes have amazing scenery, including mountain views, lava flows, and waterfalls that are all in our own backyard.

All 4 hikes will be led by Apex P.T. Physical Therapist Jim Wallace who has hiked these trails and will assist you in preparing yourself mentally and physically to be successful. The hikes are non-technical approaches requiring only hiking boots, food, water, and a few extra layers of clothing.

We will go at a pace that everybody can stay together with rest breaks to refuel and rehydrate. Slow and steady wins the race! Last year, Jim led some training hikes at Smith Rock to get ready for the first hike at Black Butte.

The tentative schedule will be Black Butte 5/19, Smith Butte 6/16, Green Lakes 7/14, and Broken Top Lake 8/4. Locations and/or dates may change due to weather, snow levels, etc. We look forward to meeting those of you who will join us for this adventure!

Start training today! Smith Rock is a great place to warm up those legs!

Please call Apex P. T. at 541-475-1218 to sign up, and Jim will contact you with specifics when all details have been finalized.
