There's still room in this free and informative 2.5-hour evening seminar, designed for brand new hikers as well as people who have hiked before, but want an introduction to safe hiking.

The November 1 seminar will help you find hikes that suit your interests and capabilities, understand common trail hazards, choose the right gear and clothing, and practice Leave-No-Trace and good trail etiquette. We'll also provide useful information on permits, where to buy essential gear on a budget, and other valuable resources.

During the seminar, we'll introduce participants to The Mountaineers and show them how to find and register for one of our many amazing volunteer-led hikes and skills classes in the area! Additional volunteers will bring gear to demonstrate.

Space is limited, so please register in advance so we know how many people to expect:
