College & Young Adults

Water For The Journey

An Urban Hiking Adventure

College Cohort Details: Wednesdays, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Young Adult Cohort: Time and location,  5:30 – 7:30

Journey Log:  North Bank Trail


You are invited to join college students and young adults as we set out on monthly hikes in the Richmond area and build community along the trail. In between hikes, we will meet to reflect on the journey along the trail and the journey we are taking into adulthood – a journey filled with excitement, anxiety, promise, and yes, a little awkwardness from time to time. But it’s a journey that can be made easier when others are walking it with you.

Throughout the fall, winter, and spring, these groups will also be joined by guests who have experienced the trail and have stories of triumph, failure, regret, and even embarrassment to share. You will get to learn from their experience and know that there is hope in any situation. So, come join us on Richmond’s urban trails this year and find your place among a group traveling toward adulthood and embracing all the ups and downs that come with it!
