VAIL — Members of the Vail Town Council and Eagle County Commissioners are inviting outdoor enthusiasts to join them for another in a series of leisurely monthly hiking outings on Vail Mountain. This hike will take place on Friday, Aug. 10.

Hike with the Electeds is a continuation of outdoor networking events that have included ski and ride outings in the winter. Organized by Councilman Greg Moffet and Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry, the outings are a way to experience the outdoors and connect with community members while networking with their government counterparts outside the confines of a traditional public meeting.

To take part in the next hike, participants are asked to meet at a new location — Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead — at 3 p.m. The group will hike to Eagles Nest and then download on the gondola and meet for refreshments at The Tavern in Lionshead. No lift ticket is required for this activity.

No RSVPs are needed to take part in the hike. Participants simply need to meet in Lionshead Village and assume responsibility for water and any additional hiking provisions, as well as the cost of an after-hike refreshment. An intermediate hiking ability level is advised.
