Outdoor Adventures “Strenuosity” Scale
The following scale is designed to help you identify the physical demand (not skill level needed) for each adventure outing. Look for the following numbers next to each outing below
  1. Outing is relaxed with a minimal amount of physical exertion.
  2. Some elements might be slightly strenuous, but no prior physical conditioning is needed.
  3. Outing has some physically demanding aspects. Expect to sweat, and be sore the next day. 
  4. You will need to be in good physical condition and be prepared to be challenged.
