Welcome to Inland Northwest Hikers.

  • Please add the first initial of your last name to your profile.  We have several Karen's, Kathy's, Paul's, etc.
  • Please make sure you added a photo of your face to your profile. Your photo helps the hiking leaders connect a name to a face at the trailhead.  Thanks.

We are a group of hiking enthusiasts dedicated to exploring our local area. We primarily focus on day hikes in our local area, and our leaders offer backpacking, canoeing, snowshoeing cross country skiing trips as well.  The hikes range from easy, fairly flat urban byways to strenuous, steep wilderness trails. Our goal is to foster an atmosphere where people have an opportunity to enjoy hiking in a relaxed and social environment.

We regularly visit areas such as Bead Lake, Mt. Spokane, Latah Creek, Riverside State Park, Liberty Lake, as well as trails along the Little Spokane River. Weekends we often travel a few hours and hike locations such as Scotchman Peak in North Idaho and Steamboat Rock in Central Washington. In the past two years, we’ve lead more than 200 hikes in these and other locations and want to share the enjoyment and beauty of the local area with others.

We welcome hikers of all ages and abilities. We  ask each hiker new to the group to choose hikes they can handle comfortably and show up at the trailhead prepared.   You can always start with one of the easier hikes and progress to more strenuous hikes later, if that's best. So, come join us and experience the Inland Northwest from a trail near you.
