Start off slow and then taper off......

If this sounds your hiking m.o., then have we got a deal for you!

Looking to meet local outdoor enthusiasts that are NOT SPEED DEMONS ON THE TRAIL (or don't mind a slower pace), but love to do amazing, SOMETIMES TOUGH AND CHALLENGING hikes.

Just because we're not speedy or crazy fit doesn't mean we don't want to be at the top of Cheam or Needle Peak or High Pass at Mt Baker or Cascade Pass/Sahale Arm off the Cascades Hwy..etc. etc.! We just don't get there fast!

There are plenty of hiking groups suited for the strong, fast hikers out there. We will keep a relaxed pace and enjoy the journey in a mellow manner. We only travel as fast as the slowest person in the group ...and it's requested that if you are much faster that you stop now and again, to allow the rest to catch up.

Please respect the idea of this group, and be willing to slow it down a bit...otherwise, why join?!!

Hopefully, we will revel in stunning views while enjoying the company of fun & friendly people.

This should allow people of differing levels of fitness and experience a chance to get out and enjoy the trails.

We will also throw in a smattering of other activities such as walkabouts, biking, kayaking, movies, pub night, etc, but will always ATTEMPT to incorporate a walk or something active with it.

WE ARE NOT TRAINED EXPERTS, and are out to have a great time just like you. But, as a group of friends, we will do our best to make sure everyone has a fun and safe trip.

That doesn't absolve you of responsibility! Educate yourself at a minimum (Some ideas: books/Google/Clubtread/Wta.org/Nwhikers.net/MEC/REI etc. so that you are aware of trail & animal safety, 10 essentials, trail etiquette, destinations, etc.) Be prepared!

Feel free to suggest some good hiking destinations and adventures.

See you out there:)
