What we're about

This is an activity group for all ages and abilities. Friendly pets are welcome.*

We do 1 or 2 group things per month usually on Saturdays.

When you join, Please let us know what you'd like to do first!!

I will add a descriptor to the Meetups as follows (I'll add a +/- to add more detail):

Hard - Example - Camp Muir day hike OR 50+ miles on a bicycle with hills.

Medium - Example - Summit Mt. Defiance/Mailbox Peak OR ride 40-50miles with hills.

Easy - Example - Hike to Talapus Lake in summer OR ride bikes around Lake Sammamish at Cascades group 'brisk' pace.

Picnic - Example - Walk around a flat park for a few hours OR ride bikes around Greenlake.

Study - Example - Sit at Starbuck's and learn how to use a Compass.

Volunteer - Example - Spend a few hours working on Homeless data collection.

Social - Example - Meet for dinner or a movie.

Our activities are more experiential than goal oriented. The goal is to be out in nature or gather for relaxed fun activity. The summit of a mountain is not the goal...we often turn back to support the group. But, if the conditions are right and it's safe...let's try for the summit!

During winter months, this group takes an extremely conservative approach to Avalanche safety.
