Our events are held outside, with occasional indoor activities. Event attendees are expected to respect the wellbeing of our members and be vaccinated for Covid-19 or wear a mask at all times while at an event. There are masks & sanitizer on hand at all events, if needed.
We are a participate-at-your-own-risk, activity-based group. We do our best to give you all the logistical information on each event. It is up to you to decide if you have the physical abilities to safely attend an event. You take full responsibility if you choose to attend an event. We care for your well-being and will support your participation. We are not medical professionals. If you are at an event and find it exceeds your abilities or if you just need a rest period, SPEAK UP. Your safety is a priority.
WINTER SNOW FUN
Every winter we try to go snowshoeing or Cross Country skiing several times. Because these depends on the weather, specific dates are difficult to plan in advance. Contact Brian if you want to be put on a last minute email list. If the weather is looking favorable and you have time to go, anyone can “reply to all” and see who else has interest for that weekend. There is a $120 season snow park pass (Or $20+ per day, per car) that is needed at all of the 3 locations we go to along I-90. Carpooling can also be arranged.
If you don’t own your gear but have interest in attending. The group has enough snow shoes no one should ever have to rent them. Cross country gear will need to be rented prior to the date. Brian can give you advice on rental facilities.
January 22, 2022 Green Lake Loop 11am
A local favorite we’ve never actually done. It’s an easy, level, paved 2.8 mile walk around the lake. Meeting point will be the parking area near Seattle Public Theater on the north west side of the lake. After lunch we’ll head over to Bongos Cafe for Caribbean food. The restaurant is located 0.5 miles from our meeting point. For some it may be easier to move our cars but others may choose to walk. However, there is NOT a pedestrian crosswalk from lake side directly to the restaurant.
February 26, 2022 Redmond Watershed Preserve 11am
This urban park hike is one we’ve not tried. The preserve is forested and has multiple intertwined trails making up a 4.5-mile loop. Our path will go up and down with about 400′ of elevation gain. It has rocks, tree roots and mud to navigate. A walk good for all ability levels and dopamine making. Some trails are multi use. mountain bikers, horses, runners and pedestrian all share the preserve. Parking is free. There are restrooms. Dogs are not allowed.
Here’s the WTA link for directions and more info.
Our lunch spot is an English Pub just 1.6 miles away, which should be prefect on a cold PNW February day. Our estimated time of arrival there is 1pm. Please join us for 1 or both events. We’ll be going to the 23525 NE Novelty Hill Road location. (not the downtown Redmond location.)
