Hiking Day Trip Adventures -- simple and fun!

Get out! Whether you’re visiting the Seattle area for a day or have lived here forever, you should definitely get out and enjoy the beautiful state of Washington. One of our Cascade Adventure Guides can take you on a moderate day hike where you can see the Cascade Mountains, the lush multihued greens of our prehistoric-looking plants, and, on a clear day, perhaps even a summit or two in the distance. We enjoy protected areas such as Washington State Parks or State lands during our day trip Adventures.

The Adventures are usually 6-8 hours long and are suitable for anyone of moderate fitness. We will likely hike 5-10 miles depending on abilities and time limitations. Participants will be carrying their own water, lunch and snacks. Recommendations for appropriate clothing are available. Trekking poles are optional and recommended based on individual preference. Ages: 8 years old (with parental permission) and above.

Challenge level: 2-3. Cost per person, $85 plus tax - it's good to get outside, no matter what the weather. Other details.

There is a 10% discount on all Adventures for seniors 55 years wise and more.

 

Overnight Backpacking Adventures -- back country!

Our overnight trips allow us to get deeper into the North Cascades National Park backcountry & immerse ourselves in the splendor of the Northwest. We hike in about 5-10 miles, taking our time to enjoy the views. It’ll go something like this: hike, pause, hike, lunch, hike, pause, hike, pitch camp. Since our goal is to help you eventually get out on your own, everyone helps set up camp. Your guide is there to assist and will share insights, fun stories and direction. We practice Leave No Trace ethics on all our trips, and we will work together to cook dinner & breakfast (included).
 

Our overnight trips are suitable for people who are moderately fit; you will be carrying a pack of about 30 pounds (plus or minus). We will provide you with a list of personal gear and recommended clothing. Trekking poles are optional but recommended based on individual preference.

Ages: 13 years old (with parental permission) and above.
 

Challenge level: 4. Cost per person, $275 plus tax (single night) - INCLUDES all dedicated gear, permits, dinner & breakfast (you'll help cook!). Other details. (For more experienced backpackers, longer backpack Adventures are available; for details, please call or email us.)

Silver Boots Special: Exclusive hiking Adventures that are only for folks 55+ years young who prefer a mature pace. Of course, a 10% discount on all Adventures for seniors 55 years wise and more is available.
