Guam Boonie Stompers
Guam Boonie Stompers is a non-profit Guam corporation hiking group composed of volunteer leaders committed to public access while protecting our island's heritage.
Every Saturday, Guam Boonie Stompers offers public hikes to a variety of destinations such as beaches, snorkeling sites, waterfalls, mountains, caves, latte sites, and World War II sites. We meet at 9:00 AM in the parking lot behind the Food Court of Chamorro Village in Hagatna. The cost is $5.00 for hikers over 17. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Hikers should provide their own transportation.
Guam’s trails are not developed. Weather conditions can make the hikes more difficult than described. No reservations required. For more information: http://www.facebook.com/
