What we're about

Hello! This is Rebekah. Welcome to this amazing and supportive group that is designed for people who are struggling to get out on the trail but for various reasons (including ableism, not feeling welcomed on the trail due to elitism on the trail or people telling you or making you feel you cannot do something) but do not feel that they can. For example, when the weekend comes around, you keep telling yourself you are going to get outside in nature, but you are too fat, too unhealthy, etc., etc. Well, guess what? We are an unconditionally positive group (tone set by me!) who will help you reach your fitness goals and desire to be out in nature by keeping a slow, non stressful pace and building each other up in a positive way.

As for me, I started this group because I have fibromyalgia and I was tired of feeling (after extensive elitism that I experience on trails) that I could not get out in nature like my advanced mountain climbing husband due to my chronic pain.

In my heart, I wanted to be that supportive voice to say, "You can do it, and so can I!"

This is the voice that will change the game for us mentally, emotionally and physically. This group embraces diversity of all kinds and is open to all people including LGBTQ and Transgender people and ALL people.

The goal is to do small local hikes which are focused and centralized in King County, but will include an occasional hike up a small mountain in a distant county that may be an hour or so away (Olympia, North Bend, etc.)

Lincoln Park WEDNESDAYS in WEST SEATTLE!

Lincoln Park

I have decided to add light evening hikes once a week (if at all possible) right now to get potentially new members, but also because I am going through a lot of hell right now and it will keep me going. Due to not being able to find any kind of office job (I cannot work retail due to my fibro) I am REALLY WORRIED about losing my hiking group due to have no money, my car (our car died), getting an eviction notice, phone and electric is about to be shut off. I really hope that we can have an enjoyable day at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. I really hope some people show up and we are going to meet at the lower parking lot and have a beautiful day at Lincoln Park which is a beautiful park in West Seattle.

Discover Pass Required Let all go out and take a light hike out at the classic Bridal Trails State Park in Kirkland, Washington. This park is located close by is home to stunning forest and great urban trails. As always this is hike is a slower social pace hike. Plan a hike around 3 miles and 300 feet or less of elevation gain. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
