Trails and Hiking
Rossmoor has a great trail system for all levels and the Trails Club offers a variety of hikes every Wednesday and Saturday, and a walk around the golf courses on Mondays.
Hikers are divided into four groups. Generally, Amblers hike three to five miles at a moderate pace with up to 500-foot-elevation gain. Ramblers hike five to seven miles. Trekkers hike six to eight miles, and Scramblers six to nine miles. Each succeeding group may hike areas with more elevations gain or at a faster pace.
Monday walkers meet at 8:45 a.m. on the large patio between Peacock Hall and Gateway Clubhouse. Amblers, Ramblers, Trekkers and Scramblers meet Wednesdays and Saturdays behind Gateway Multipurpose Room 3 at 8:45 a.m. to arrange carpools to trailheads; departure is at 9 a.m..
