by John Nuerenberg, Hiking Club

The hikers abide by the “Stay Healthy” recommendations and follow CDC guidelines for outdoor recreation.


Friday, December 9 – Larry Scott Trail

We will start at the southern end at Milo Curry Trailhead and walk 4-6 miles round trip with minimal elevation gain, depending on how far the group wishes to go before turning around. There is a restroom at the trailhead and another at the 3.5 milepost (aka Cape George Trailhead) if anyone wishes to go that far. If interested, consider stopping for lunch in Port Townsend after the hike. Hike leaders: John and Chris Fisher, portludlowhikingclub.com/contact

Friday, December 23 – Local Trails

Walk off a few of those calories before more come on with the holidays! Take advantage of some of the local trails in Port Ludlow by meeting up with some fellow hikers to determine which trail(s) would make a great hike. Gather at 8:15 a.m. per usual and start walking/driving to trailhead at 8:30 a.m. Hike leader: Self-led

Walk the 4.2-mile Timberton Loop. Enjoy views of the Olympic Mountains. This is a no-leader hike. Meet other walkers at the parking lot trailhead on Timberton Drive at 9 a.m.

Monday/Wednesday/Friday – 8 a.m.

Join the “Trail Club Group” that meets at the golf club parking lot for a self-led walk on the abandoned golf cart path trail or other alternative route.
