Interested in a guided hike?
We want to show you everything the pacific northwest has to offer.
We would be thrilled to lead your adventure!
First, we will call to learn more about you, when you want to hike, your experience/fitness level, and some of the types of things you're hoping to see (example: waterfalls). We will create an itinerary based off of your specifics, which we will send to you to approve or re-design.
On the day of the hike, we will take care of all of the logistics. We will pick you up and drop you off, provide packs and food, and teach you all about the geology, flora, and fauna in the area.
If you would like to learn more, please provide your contact information.
if you are ready to hike, please provide your contact information and reserve your hike
