Urban Hiking:

Fridays at 9:30am.

If you are new or returning to hiking, this program will get you started and on your way to better health. There is nothing like being part of a group to help motivate you! Explore the parks and neighborhoods of the greater Seattle area, the East side and Mercer Island.  We meet at various locations, hike for 3-4 miles and try to get our heart rates up. Plan on up to 2 hours.

Midweek Hikes:

Midweek Hikes run every Wednesday from April through September with hikes in the Issaquah Alps, I-90 corridor and Snoqualmie Pass area, North Cascades and Mt. Rainier National Park.

Midweek hikes are trail hikes in the mountains, which means you will see some beautiful scenery.  It also means that they are more challenging than walking in the city.  These hikes are progressive; we start with easier hikes and work up to longer distances and more elevation gain as we get further into the season.  If you are thinking of hiking with us, it’s best to start in spring so that you can work up to the more challenging hikes that happen later on in the year.
