March GoHike Pacing Hikes: 2 to 4 miles, 0 to 750 feet of elevation gain - Paradise Valley Conservation Area

The Paradise Valley Conservation Area is a fairly new Snohomish County park near Woodinville. Mostly level trails loop through and around the headwaters of Bear Creek making this forest a perfect spot for our pacing hike! Pace Hike: This is an easy, low-stress hike to help you determine where you are in terms of gear, the pace (1.5 - 2 mph) and distance you can complete comfortably, and what your season goals for conditioning and hiking are, so that you can determine what level of hikes and pace would be the best fit for you to sign up for.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
