The Mountain View Hiking Group is based out of Tumwater Washington from the Mountain View Church of the Nazarene.
This hiking group does at least one activity each month from February through October. Most events are in Western Washington and are open to everyone. You do not need to be a member of our church. Just show up for the hike.
Mountain View Church is located at: 940 Israel Rd SW, Tumwater, WA 98501
Heading west from Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center, snowshoe along the roadway as it rolls around the flank of the Hurricane Ridge meadows. The road soon enters forest and drops gently with the ridge for nearly a mile. The trail levels out along a high saddle, passing a broad picnic area near the end of the road. A brief climb from the picnic area takes you to the end of the road at 1.5 miles. At this point the real snowshoeing work begins. If you are just looking for a quiet stroll, turn back here and explore the trailside meadows on your return trip; but if you are looking for more of a challenge and the weather is cooperating, continue toward Hurricane Hill for a 6-mile roundtrip snowshoe.
Registration for this hike will open up on Sunday, March 1, 10:15am.
