Join Hiking with Geeks, Seattle for a beautiful 11 mile(s) hike, and meet some fellow geeks!
This is a steep hike: if there is interest in splitting into two groups – with one resting at the first lake (for an 8-mile round trip total) and the other continuing to the second destination (for the full 11-mile round trip) – we will organize that at the trailhead before we begin. A Northwest Forest Pass or America The Beautiful pass are required for parking at this trailhead. This is a popular trail, so arriving early and carpooling are strongly recommended.
• The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the Rachel Lake & Rampart Lakes 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.
