***Welcome to Hiking Series***
Get yourself out and on the trails during the offseason by joining the Tacoma Hiking and Backpacking Committee on a series of easy to moderate fall and winter hikes that are focused on beginners. Learn tips, tricks, and strategies from our experienced hike leaders that will help increase your confidence to get outside and enjoy yourself. Hikes will range from 4 to 6 miles in length and will be led at a slower pace that is perfect for hikers who are starting (or perhaps re-starting) their hiking journey. These trips will run from November 2023 through March 2024.

All of these hikes are Leader's Permission Required so that once you notify the leader of your interest, we can send you a handout of what you will need to be prepared for the hike itself.
