The Nisqually Land Trust is organizing a snowshoe expedition to see the Mount Rainier area in its winter splendor.
On Jan. 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., land steward Charly Kearns and outreach coordinator Cris Peck will lead a small group on a four-mile round-trip snowshoe hike on the Mount Tahoma trail system. The Land Trust's recently acquired Nisqually Community Forest property - 640 acres along Busy Wild Creek – will be among the destinations.
The route is described as moderate to strenuous, with approximately 800 feet in elevation gain.
Participants (the group size is limited to 20 people) will meet at Whittaker Mountaineering in Ashford at 30027 State Route 706. Snowshoe can be rented at Whittaker Mountaineering for $15.
Snow Park day passes are required for each vehicle and cost $20 for Discovery Pass holders or $30 for those with no Discovery Pass.
Registration and information is available from Nikki Dizon of the Land Trust at email@example.com and 360-489-3400.
Nisqually Land Trust is a non-profit preservation and conservation organization involved with the Nisqually watershed.
