Olympia Hiking and Backpacking Committee Meeting – Nov 9

Join the Olympia Branch for a Hiking and Backpacking Committee meeting! This online meeting is a place for hike and backpack leaders within the branch to come together, share ideas, and get a refresher if you haven’t led any activities for a while. We will be reviewing our plans for the 2021-2022 season, providing news on the latest Mountaineers leader guidelines, and sharing experiences from the last year.

The meeting will be held via Zoom on November 9 at 6:30pm, RSVPs are required.


Olympia Hiking and Backpacking Committee

Curious about what activities the Olympia Hiking and Backpacking Committee hosts? Take a look at our offerings:

Hiking is a phenomenal way to get outside and explore the best of what the Northwest has to offer. Whether you want a thigh-burning training hike or a slow meander through the understory of the forest, our hike leaders have something for everyone.

Enjoy overnight backpacking trips with a group of like-minded travelers. Explore alpine environments, lowland old-growth forests, the Pacific coast, or the Eastern sagebrush steppe; we have activities posted around the state!

Family Hikes
The Olympia Branch Family Hiking Committee is a sub-Committee of the Olympia Hiking Committee, established to give families and their young children a way to get out and explore nature.

Conditioning Hiking Series
This course offers participants the chance to develop their fitness capabilities, build community, and reach new distance and elevation goals.

Urban Adventures
Urban Adventures are trips that take place in town, at locations like city parks, boulevards, hidden staircases, and more. Most Urban Adventures are rated as easy to moderate, and done at a slower pace. Join your fellow Mountaineers and explore places close to home.

Exploring Nature
These are slowly-paced hikes designed to allow hikers to enjoy the beauty of the natural world. They are often theme-based, including waterfalls, wildflowers, photography, and bird watching. Sometimes they even include an expert on the subject matter. In addition to Exploring Nature activities, the Naturalist Committee also offers Talk and Walks, a talk by a local expert followed by a field trip to explore what was discussed.
