Unplug from Matrix of daily life and sink into deeper CONNECTION with nature. Join a small group of adventurers to climb over 1,000 ft. through 2 miles of lush Pacific Northwest forest and celebrate your accomplishment with a 5 star picnic as we bask in sunset with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and picturesque lake below. This hike strikes a balance of being accessible to most with a base fitness level and challenging and short enough to never get boring. We initiate all of our experiences with a mindfulness practice to leave behind the hustle of daily life and invite you to be fully present in Nature. After enjoying a delicious picnic on the ledge, we'll descend as twilight turns to darkness. No worries though, this is a well maintained trail and we've got you covered with headlamps and flashlights. We will meet in Seattle to ride together to the Rattlesnake Ledge trailhead. On the way we will pause to admire the region's largest and most impressive waterfalls, Snoqualmie Falls - a sacred place according to beliefs of the native Snoqualmie people. Please note, we hike rain or shine - please bring appropriate gear (we have extra rain jackets if necessary).
