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

Yes. I think there's always more to learn, though. I don't think it's a bad idea for organizers to briefly discuss the etiquette pre-hike.

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)

7? 8? Haven't met a hike I couldn't finish yet. I think I have become more used to elevations, as I'm a flat lander. I have to learn about more technical hikes. I feel fairly comfortable on snow with my equipment. I don't have navigation skills, though.

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”

N/A

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

The Wentachee/Cady Ridge Loop almost killed my tailbone. It was pretty, despite snowy inclines from hell. Lake Serene is pretty rough as far as the incline/rapid elevation gain, but I would do it again due to great views.

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”

None now.

Introduction

Hi, I have been living in Seattle since 2010. I'm from Baton Rouge (no mountains, but the weather is a lot sunnier!). I've been hiking like mad since I moved here.

What Jennifer S. is saying about this Meetup Group

Fun people. Really chill.
