  • Easy
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

We will meet at the Bayshore Preserve parking area, directly across from Bayshore Store / gas station, on SR3, approximately 4 miles north of downtown Shelton.  Time to be determined.

This family adventure is open to all members and non-members (who are eligible to participate in 2 activities before joining). A responsible adult must accompany all minors unless previous arrangements have been made with the leader.  Although this is rated as an easy activity, please note that there is uneven terrain.

Bring your lunch which we will enjoy at leader's home, next to the preserve, where hot beverages will be provided.
