The Mountaineers Foothills Branch has been growing in leaps and bounds, both in our grown number of members and fun and educational program offerings. We'd love to have you join us! The Foothills branch serves members on Seattle's eastside, along the I-405 and I-90 corridors.

Find new friends, make connections, and get information about how to join on our many great programs. From backcountry skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing, to hiking, backpacking, alpine scrambling, and trail running, to avalanche awareness, wilderness first aid, and navigation, our educational opportunities will get you outside!

Join us beginning at 6:30pm at the  KCLS Service Center in Issaquah, 960 Newport Way NW (note: this is NOT the Issaquah Library).


The evening will also include a presentation by volunteers from our long-time Mountaineers partners the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust: "Community Engagement across the Mountains to Sound Greenway"

"Weaving together the urban and the wild, the Mountains to Sound Greenway connects 1.5 million acres surrounding Interstate 90, including the 15th-largest metropolis in the United States. More than 900,000 acres of land are now publicly owned, from city parks to expansive public forests. At the heart of the Greenway Trust’s mission is the belief that we form stronger and more resilient communities when connected to nature. This presentation will highlight the Greenway's history and the numerous opportunities for members of the community to learn about, explore and steward the Greenway landscape. Extra attention will be given to the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley and our efforts to enhance and improve the recreational infrastructure there including ways that the Mountaineers can plug in and support efforts."  


Hope to see you there!
