Meet other local leisure hiking enthusiasts in this dog-and-family-friendly group. We'll set a slower pace, and ensure that no one is left behind. Please note: we mean HIKES-- not walks down nature paths. :) There may be some walks down nature paths, but please be prepared to do real-life hiking. Some members of our group are overweight and out of shape and want to do something about it. Others may have injuries or bad knees and need to hike at a slower pace. Some just like to enjoy the day in nature and take plenty of pictures. If you are interested in a no pressure group that hikes at a slower pace, we are the group for you. If you are a little quicker, feel free to go at your own pace. We will naturally break into groups based upon hiking speeds. (No one hikes alone!)
Because while we do intend to take it pretty easy, we still want to see results from all of our hard work. Positive attitudes encouraged! I personally invite all those who are dedicated to slower-paced hiking excursions in the Pacific Northwest, with a focus on losing weight or getting in shape, and leaving no trace of litter on our lands! And most importantly, have fun doing it!
Before applying for membership, PLEASE review our Rules & Regulations in the "PAGES".
We do not require members to pay dues, However, there is a cost to maintaining this site so donations are accepted. If you enjoy this group please consider contributing $10 per year.
We look forward to hiking with you! Oh, and if you are interested in suggesting a hike or becoming a coordinator, let us know! :) Our group says we are from Bothell but we have coordinators that live both North and South and we hike all over the region.
