November 15, 2020: With the recent COVID surge and new restrictions, I thought it prudent we put on hold meetup activities. I'll make an announcement when we can hike again.
Hello and welcome to the Bellingham Trails and Adventure Group! We are about getting outside, getting fit, and having fun adventures with others. We are open to anyone 18 years or older with an adventurous spirit. We have several event organizers. Whether you are interested in a neighborhood walk after work, an expedition into the high mountains, or an ocean kayak trip I hope you will be able to find something of interest with our Bellingham Trails and Adventure Group. My vision is to have a variety of different events hosted by a diverse leadership team. I hope to see you on one of our adventures soon!
Prior to July 2020, this meetup group was focused solely on hiking and walking. I am expanding the scope to include other outdoor adventures. If you are interested in organizing any kind of outdoor adventure activity, please feel free to contact me.
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” --Helen Keller
Organizers in this group are not guides, instructors, or medical professionals. You alone are 100% responsible for your own safety and comfort and for the safety of those you bring as guests. We may give you our opinions on whether or not an activity is suitable for you, but the ultimate responsibility lies with you, as we are not experts. For outdoor activities, you should carry the ten essentials: https://www.wta.org/go-outside/trail-smarts/ten-essentials . Certain activities may require other gear. If you don't know, ask! Someone can likely share advice or ideas.
