The Hiking division is made up of Everett
Mountaineers interested in hiking. Many
of those who participate in hiking are also active in other activities,
as scrambling, bicycling, climbing, and sea kayaking.
Many of us seek the solitude of wilderness, while others are interested
in great views. Still others like the challenge and the fitness
that come from hiking backcountry trails.
To lead trips for The Everett Mountaineers, hike leaders must
attend a leader orientation session and lead one hike mentored
by an experienced hike leader.
The Hiking Committee
The Hiking Committee is a group of volunteers who teach hiking-related
courses and promote safety and fun among Mountaineer hike participants.
Chairperson: Ed Andrews, firstname.lastname@example.org
The following Courses are offered
by the Hiking Committee.
- Hike Essentials - Safe travel on backcountry trails
- Hike Leader – Skills to organize and lead hikes
Choose a hike for your level of fitness and interest:
The Hiking Committee offers a variety
The surest way to a bad experience with the Mountaineers is to sign up for a hike beyond your capabilities. Start small and work your way up to the longer and more difficult hikes. Remember, almost all Mountaineer hikes have some elevation gain. So if you are not accustomed to hiking in mountainous terrain start with a short distance and a low elevation gain. If hiking is a social activity, sign up for the leisurely paced hikes. If hiking is your way of getting a workout, try the fast paced hikes.
