Winter Hiking Series: I-90 Alley

Hike with us to keep your conditioning up during the off-season in the Issaquah Alps and I-90 alley.

A day hiking course focused on trips offered in the Issaquah Alps and I-90 alley. Attend the required online zoom classroom session and participate in two hikes per month between January and March.

MAIN GOAL OF THE SERIES: To introduce all to winter hiking which at times can be challenging as a way to stay conditioned so that one is ready to hike in the higher mountains when the snow disappears.  This series is meant for all to become familiar with hikes in the lower elevations of the I-90 Alley  area  to maintain your hike conditioning during the winter.
