Disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life during this family friendly overnight backpacking trip in the beautiful wilderness of Washington State!

This is a great opportunity to spend some time with your family in the lovely Snoqualmie National Forest conveniently accessible from Seattle. During this beginner friendly trip, we will take a relaxing hike through the forest as we make our way to the clear waters of one of the area’s peaceful lakes, where we will set up our camp. Options include Annette Lake, Snow Lake, or Talapus and Olallie Lakes.

After meeting at the trailhead during the first day of the program, we will set off through the forest, moving at a comfortable pace. Along the way, we will discuss some backpacking basics that will come in handy for your next family camping trip. Specific topics  include: outdoor safety, Leave no Trace principles, packing tips and tricks, and meal planning and execution.

When we arrive at our camping spot, we will set up camp and begin preparing dinner. Afterwards, you will have time to further explore the area or to lounge by the lake, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the woods. After a restful night sleeping in our tent under the stars, we break camp after breakfast the next morning and hike out.

This is a great program for kids 9 years and older. Kids under 9 may participate if they have past experience hiking or camping with their family.

Book now for a fun weekend relaxing with your family in the lovely forest outside of Seattle! Plus, you will learn the basics of backpacking for all your family’s future backpacking and camping trips!
