Join us for a beautiful 7 mile(s) hike, and meet some fellow geeks!
We’ll be departing from the trailhead off Smithbrook Road #1590, not the alternate trailhead at Stevens Pass. A Northwest Forest Pass – annual or day pass, or America The Beautiful annual pass – is required for parking at this trailhead. You can get a one-day Northwest Forest Pass here if you need one: https://store.usgs.gov/forest-pass
• The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the Lake Valhalla trail head at that time. We’ll leave promptly 15 minutes after the scheduled start time (to give some cushion for late arrivers while still respecting everyone’s time). We’ll hike the trail and get to know each other along the way.
• For those that want to grab a bite after our hike, we’ll make plans to grab a bite to eat if there’s interest.
• To coordinate rides, please use the Hiking with Geeks Seattle group here: https://geekadventures.org/groups/?hiking-with-geeks-seattle/.
