The Seattle Backpackers Meetup Group Pages

The Seattle Backpackers are about making new friends and exploring the great North West's out of doors together.

Do you like to day hike, attend socials, snowshoe or cross country ski in addition to backpacking or just learning about backpacking?

Then we are the group for you.
This exploration may be as simple as meeting fellow backpacking enthusiasts in a social setting to tell old war stories and help plan new adventures. I hope we can squeeze in a few clinics on Compass and Mapping, First Aid, appropriate gear for different trips Etc. I am sure we will plan day hikes. For the slightly more adventurous we will have many weekend backpacking and camping trips for Friday and Saturday nights. For the much more adventurous trips of three days to potentially a week or longer will not be out of the question if enough people are interested.

In this group there is no such thing as inexperienced or over qualified. Everyone and anyone is always welcome.

Please feel free to email an organizer with any questions you have or just post to the message board.

Hope to meet you soon,
