What we're about

Hikers and campers who live in the city! This is a group for people who like to hike and camp and who live, work, or frequently visit central Seattle neighborhoods. There are a ton of great outdoors groups around the region, but this group has a deliberately narrow geographic focus to facilitate carpooling, gear sharing and post-Meetup socializing. The group is primarily focused on wilderness type activities that involve traveling out of the city, but in-town adventures are encouraged as well!
