Ever wanted to explore further-a-field than the Chuckanuts, Lake Padden and 100-acre woods? Been a little intimated by the Mount Baker wilderness area?

Well don't let that stop you from joining us for this overnight hike that will take us out into the Mount Baker-Snoqulamie Widerness for gorgeous views. Along the hike we'll hike through forest, alpine meadows and learn how to navigate with map and compass! We'll help prepare you for backpacking in the wilderness - including sharing our tips on what to bring, what NOT to bring, how to pack your bag and what to expect on the trail.

Shifting Gears trips are specially designed for beginners. Our groups are easy-going, supportive, fun and in it for the sake of adventuring together as Womxn. We've got your back and we're here to help you problem solve or calm any pre-trip jitters. Plus, there are spectacular sights along the trail, giving us so many excuses to take it slow and take as many pauses and snack breaks as we want!
