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

Yes heard of, and yes, hope I am familiar with the correct etiquette. But I am always appreciative of polite suggestions.

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)

9. Done tons of day hikes, overnight and multi-day backpack trips. But won't give myself 10 til I have bagged one of the Cascade Volcano peaks. :)

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”

Not applicable.

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

Probably Ho River valley to Blue Glacier multi-day backpack. Most difficult due to it being my first solo backpack trip, and the length and altitude gain on the way up was pretty strenuous.

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”

I am on a self-defined mission to visit every Wilderness Area and National Park major areas at least once. This year I'm gunning for The Brothers Wilderness, Glacier View Wilderness and Goat Rocks Wilderness. I am happy to have company on any of these with hikers of comparable slowness, occassional gimpyness and photo mania.


howdy hikers.
