Hi I'm trying to start hikking, but no one in the Seattle group offers begging hikes on the weekends!! I work all week long, so I can't go on the only beginning hikes offered by the Seattle group - hikes that take place on a Tuesday at 11am. NOT possible! All of the weekend hikes are moderate or professional level which I have to work my way up to. The whole point to joining was to build my hikking skills up, but I can't if there aren't any hikes available (that I'm able to attend) for me to take.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I'll pass along your feedback to the Seattle hiking committee who help coordinate these trips. In this case I've cc'd Heidi Walker who is the chair (she can be reached directly at [email blocked]

    I also encourage you to look at all of the hikes that are being led by different branches so that you may find one that best suits your skill level. I've included links to a couple upcoming trips that are in the Easy category to get started with on the weekends. I found these by going to the Get Outside and Explore tab and clicked on hiking.

    Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you and hopefully one of these will work for your schedule.

    Best!
