      Walk #1: Ski Hill Meander 10K or 12K Washington State Challenge:
      Kittitas County; Nature - Trails/Mountains/Flowers
      Trail (3 or 4): From the start point you will walk to the Pacific Crest
      Trail that is opposite the hotel/start point. This is the Pacific Crest
      Trail heading SOUTH (the Kendall Katwalk is the PCT heading NORTH).
      There is a 10 or 12K option on this trail. Both routes start by
      traversing up the ski hill in a good little climb with views of the
      Summit area below. Shortly, you reach the top of the hill and head into
      the woods on the PCT. The way then becomes fairly flat with a little
      gentle rolling. You will pass Beaver Lake and Lodge Lake. The PCT
      leaves the forest briefly for some open views at the power lines.
      Those opting to do 10K (rated 3) will turn around here and head back the
      way they came. The 12K route (rated 4) continues on to a gravel road
      intersecting with the PCT. The gravel road is forested and offers some
      nice views (and is car free) as you hook left around the mountain.
      Finally, you will take Nordic and downhill ski trails across the
      mountain and back to the Summit Lodge with some really spectacular views
      of Hyak and the Summit area. Whether you enjoy skiing or have never hit
      the Summit, it’s interesting and spectacular to walk one of the most
      popular ski mountains in the summer time!
      On both routes the finish is all downhill and can be steep in spots.
      This walk is not recommended for those with knee problems.
      Miscellaneous: Indoor start location at hotel. Restrooms and water
      available at the start/finish. Carry your own water on the trail. Pets
      are allowed but owners must obey leash and scoop laws. Not suitable for
      wheelchairs or strollers.
      ====
      Walk #2: Kendall Katwalk 18K NATIONAL HERITAGE WALK (Mt.
      Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest) Washington State Challenge: Grant
      County; Nature - Trails/Flowers
      Trail (5): This trail has been called the “best day hike on the Pacific
      Crest Trail.” It is our club’s toughest walk this year and the most
      magnificent. The Foolhardy Folks prewalked this in July of 2004 and it
      was AWESOME. You will walk 5.5 miles to the Kendall Katwalk on the PCT
      heading NORTH from Snoqualmie Pass. The Katwalk is a blasted,
      bridge-like ridge along the mountain range with dramatic views on either
      side. It is over 6’ wide and has a rocky natural ‘edge’ that makes it a
      safe balcony from which to have lunch and marvel. There is a 2700’
      elevation gain on the way in, but the trail is extremely well-maintained
      and even and the grade feels moderate, if continual. The views above
      the treeline are spectacular including Red Mountain, Granite Mountain,
      Snoqualmie Pass, I-90 far below and Mt. Rainier. Backpack a lunch up to
      the Katwalk and then enjoy the views on the return trip to the trailhead
      and parking. Allow 5-6 hours for this trail. You MUST start by 11am.
      It is recommended that you bbe in fit condition to tackle this walk.
      Hiking boots advised.
      Miscellaneous: After registering at the Summit Lodge you will drive
      approx 1 mile to the trailhead. You will need a Northwest Hiking Pass
      to park at the trailhead. There is a national park office across from
      the Summit Lodge where you can purchase a day pass or visit
      http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/feedemo/ to order a day pass or annual pass
      ahead of time. An annual pass is recommended for regular hikers.
      There is a porta potty at the trailhead. Carry your own water on the
      trail. Pets are allowed but owners must obey leash and scoop laws. Not
      suitable for wheelchairs or strollers.

      Walk #3: Seasonal Walk Jul 1-Sep 30 “Snow Lake Trail” Snoqualmie Pass,
      WA IVV Credit only Enjoy this trail during our NW hiking weekend along
      with our 2 event walks.
      National Heritage Walk (Mt Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest)
      Start Location: Summit Lodge, Snoqualmie Pass (425) 434-6300
      Start time: Hotel is open 24-hrs, but complete walk well before dark.
      Ask for the “walk box” at the front desk
      Distance: 10K (6.2 miles)
      WSC: Kittias County; Nature Challenge - Mountains/Trails/Flowers
      Trail (4): This is one of the easiest day hikes into the Alpine Lakes
      Wilderness, famous for its unique beauty and crystal clear mountain
      lakes. Thus it is very popular, and you will see other hikers. By
      volkswalking standards, this is a difficult walk but well worthwhile.
      It has an 1800’ elevation gain from the trailhead to the “top” where you
      reach Snow Lake. But it is a reasonable, though steady, grade and you
      can savor the stunning, open views of the Snoqualmie mountains the
      entire way. This is one of the most dramatic trails in the Northwest.
      Enjoy your packed lunch at the lake, then retrace your path back to the
      trailhead, oohing and aahing all the way down.
      Awards & Fees: Credit only is $3.00. Free walkers are welcome but must
      register, carry and return a start card.
      Miscellaneous: Public restrooms at Traveler’s Rest adjacent to the
      Summit Lodge and a porta-potty at the trailhead. Carry your own water.
      Dogs on leash OK. Not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. After
      registering you will drive to the trailhead. You will need a Northwest
      Forest Pass to park at the trailhead. There is a national park office
      across from the Summit Lodge where you can purchase a day pass (if
      they’re open). Or visit http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/feedemo/ to order a
      pass in advance. A season’s pass is recommended for frequent hikers.
