50 & Up Cascade Hikers Meetup Group is simply a mechanism for allowing hiking enthusiasts to come together and should not be regarded as a hiking guide service.
We are a group of friendly, similar aged, fun and like-minded people that enjoy going on mostly day hikes, some overnight backpacking hikes as well as snowshoeing hikes.
This group is open to Men and Women that have a real passion for hiking! You need to be either an Advanced Novice Hiker or an Experienced Hiker that can hike at a Medium Pace and are 50 years of age or older to join! (For a description of an advanced novice hiker click on the word Pages near the top of this page.)
As the Organizer I host weekend hikes all year long, overnight backpacking hikes during the summer, weekday hikes throughout most of the year and winter snowshoeing hikes. The majority of my group hikes are in the area that starts at Mount Baker, continues down the Cascades and ends at Mount Rainier.
Staying together as a group and hiking at a medium pace is my prime objective! We make stops so we can catch our breath, enjoy the scenery, take in the great views, capture a few photo's and enjoy the berries when they are ripe. We strictly adhere to Leave No Trace, Pack it in and Pack it out policy. No hiker is ever left behind and our final destination is always safely achieved by every member on the hike!
To become a member you are required to answer the questions in your membership profile correctly, pay the yearly $5.00 dues and sign a group release of Liability form, before you can attend any of my group hikes.
