Have you heard of, or are familiar with “Trail Etiquette”?

Why of course. I don't even throw my apple cores in the woods. :) I'm from Vermont - we're pretty strict about the rules over that way...

With “1” being no experience and “10” being a well-seasoned hiker, how would you rate your skill level on a scale from 1 to 10? (Being a marathon runner or weight lifter doesn’t mean that you are necessarily ready for moderate or strenuous hikes)

I'd give myself a 7.8.

If you do not know your skill level, would you be willing to come on one of our "New Member" hikes up Rattlesnake Ledge and discuss your abilities with an organizer then? If you are well aware of your skill level, please answer “Not Applicable”


What is the favorite, most difficult hike you’ve done in WA State? If you have no experience, please answer “Not Applicable”

I haven't done too many difficult hikes over here, but plenty in the White Mountains of NH, where the trails are actually much harder, even if the altitude doesn't compare. Mt. Washington is our biggie over there, and Katahdin in Maine. Here I've hiked Si several times, snowshoed Hex and others, and I can't remember the others but there have been many!

Is there a trail you have been wanting to do and would love to conquer with other members of The Seattle Hiking Group? If you do not have one, please answer “None”

Mt. Rainier of course... but I'm up for everything. Thank you!!!


I'm from Vermont, which usually gets me big points, and I'm new to Seattle! I am happiest when on a hike, and I also love biking and sitting and walking and dancing. I'm a wicked extrovert but I love quiet hikes too.
