What we're about

Welcome to the Northwest Hikers 55 Plus website.

Our leadership team is made up of volunteers who enjoy experiencing the great scenery the Pacific Northwest region has to offer. We invite like-minded novice or experienced hikers who are ages 55 and up to join us when they can.

To enjoy our surroundings as well as allow for visiting with our fellow hikers, WE SET A SOCIAL PACE.

WHEN REQUESTING MEMBERSHIP: A clear recent picture of yourself must be submitted, so we can recognize you on our hikes; use your real name: first and (optional) last initial.

OFFICIAL MEMBERSHIP: The WAIVER: Consent, Release Agreement, and Authorization form plus $5 fee must be received by the organizer within two weeks after being approved, or you will be removed from our membership.

The SYMBOL @9 by your name confirms that you have submitted the WAIVER and fee, which means you may then RSVP and PARTICIPATE on our hikes or events.

The $5 fee and waiver are collected together every year, the fee covers the $180 Meet up website expenses, equipment, supplies, and donation to WTA.

We appreciate suggestions on hikes you've been on, to revisit them, or new ones you'd like to see.
