Wednesday, May 3 – Hike Planning Meeting

Our semi-annual hike planning meeting will be held on May 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Beach Club in Port Ludlow. We will be filling in a schedule of hikes and talking about several other items of interest and concern. If you are interested in leading a hike and participating in a hiking discussion at the meeting, please plan on attending. After the business portion of the meeting, we will spend some time socializing and getting to know each other better. Please bring a snack to share and a beverage of your choice. Scribe: John Nuerenberg.

Friday, May 12 – Ebey’s Landing

We will take the 9:30 a.m. Port Townsend ferry. Once on Whidbey Island, we will make a short drive to Ebey’s Landing State Park and then explore the National Historic Reserve. Expect an easy walk of approximately four to six miles. Ferry reservations required both ways. A Discover Pass is not required. Restrooms are available at the trailhead.

Friday, May 26 – Miller Peninsula State Park

This approximately six-mile hike will include a series of trails taking us to the beach. After parking at the main parking area by the park entrance, the Diamond Point Trail will lead to the Fireweed Road then to the Beach Trail. It includes some gentle undulation with a drop to the sea. At that point we will stop for a brief snack break and return the way we came. Restrooms are available at the trailhead. Hike leaders: Sally Nuerenberg and John Nuerenberg.

Wednesdays: Timberton Loop. Walk the 4.2-mile Timberton Loop.

Enjoy views of the Olympic Mountains. This is a no-leader hike.
