YMCA and Community members meet every Wednesday according to the annual schedule of summer hikes at 6:45am in the Common Grounds Cafe in the Lakewood Family YMCA. Transportation will not be provided. We will carpool to each hike from the Lakewood Family YMCA. Please be prepared to contribute $10 to your driver for gas and maintenance. All hikers must sign-in at the Welcome Center each hike.
Many of the trailheads afford shorter and longer versions of the same hike. Participants can choose the level of challenge they wish to conquer.
Descriptions of most trails can be found on the Washington Trails Association website (www.wta.org)
Meet at the Lakewood Family YMCA for all hikes. Please bring your ten hiking essentials and pack a lunch.
