Next Walking Group is:

January 21 – Easy! Pickering Trail and, if the trail is dry enough, through Lake Sammamish Park. Easy flat walk on paved and dirt trails. There will likely be some slightly muddy sections that we will try to skirt around.  If the trail is looking too bad we will retreat to a paved path (more street noise but no mud). 3-4 miles depending on the route we end up walking. Park at Pickering Barn: 1730 10th Ave NW, Issaquah, WA 98027

See the attached map for parking details.

On January 14 we enjoyed another invigorating (if a bit chilly) 3 mile walk around Klahanie. While we’ve been amazingly lucky with our Monday morning outings, the weather looks like it could be changing to a wetter pattern later in the week. Please make sure you are on our email list so you are notified if we have to cancel the January 21 walk.


Come join us!
