The fine folks at Red Mountain Park  (RMP) have started something new, relaxing and different this fall  – “HOGA.”

Hiking + Yoga = HOGA

Simply put, HOGA combines,  a brisk hike along the lovely trails at Red Mountain Park with the relaxation of yoga.  The sessions last 1.5 hours and consist of 2.5 miles of light hiking.

“With the addition of our three outdoor classroom spaces also came an opportunity to use the platforms at each one for a fun, new way to play at Red Mountain Park.  We hope HOGA will form great new connections for our guests to the Park they love and use so often….and that this will also introduce new folks to Red Mountain Park!” stated Katie Bradford, director of Community and Public Relations at Red Mountain Park.

Of course, along HOGA make sure to enjoy Red Mountain Park  which encompasses 1,500 acres of land along the Red Mountain Ridge.
