Welcome, thanks for checking out our hiking group!
We are not like any other hiking Meetup group in the Puget Sound area!! To become a member you must be fifty or plus years old. You will be required to go on one of our hikes, every year, to retain your membership with this hiking group!
As a hiking Meetup group, we enjoy hiking with fun, friendly folks, who want to enjoy all the great scenery, hiking brings!! The Pacific Northwest offers an abundance of opportunities to enjoy the beauty of nature. Our group’s primary objective is to experience this beauty while having fun hiking with like-minded friends.
We focus on safety, courtesy, patience, and member involvement.
Our hikes level of difficulty vary. We have some easier hikes in the spring time. The majority of our hikes are either moderate or challenging in their level of difficulty. We also have a few difficult hikes, usually these are later in the hiking season.
The pace we set is comfortable enough to enjoy our surroundings as well as allow for visiting with our fellow hikers.
The bottom line is that we achieve each hike’s goal as a group, assuring no one is left behind.
Organizers are always happy to assist members in posting or facilitating events that may be of interest to the group.
Sorry we do not accept Beginner Hikers!! You must be at least an experienced novice hiker, who already owns all the required hiking gear!!
