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

Yes.

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)

10 My father wrote hiking guidebooks including the first one on mountaineering medicine so I was well trained.

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”

most difficult: Boulder Butte (near Stehekin) 6200 feet of gain with a full backpack second most difficult: Robin Lakes - boot path to lakes is hard on older knees favorite: too many to list in 51 years of hiking

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 organize a hiking group so I mostly do my planning with that group.

Introduction

I have been an outdoor enthusiast my whole life. It's nice to have a variety of spots to find people who share those hobbies.
