New Hike Leaders Seminar

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 course.

This evening workshop provides experienced hikers or backpackers information on how to become a hike or backpack leader.  The seminar is a pre-requisite to becoming an official day hike or backpack trip leader for the Seattle and Foothills branches of the Mountaineers (secondary steps are a mentor hike or backpack and committee approval).   Active hikers/backpackers and other club members interested in becoming a new hike leader are invited to participate. Presented in an informal Q&A format, learn about hiking trip standards, recommended reading resources, outdoor leadership insights w/group breakouts, and the mentor leader program. We also review how to create a hike activity and complete activity reports on the club website. The workshop is free and open to all Mountaineers members who are interested in becoming trip leaders, but please signup online so we can anticipate group size.  See course materials folder for downloading reading reference materials prior to attending the seminar.
