The U.S. Forest Service offers 90-minute guided treks at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Participants learn about the winter ecosystem, wildlife and safety on the 1-mile-loop walk through old-growth forest.
Meet 15 minutes before your scheduled walk at the visitor’s center off Interstate 90, Exit 52 on Snoqualmie Pass. Call for reservations at 425-434-6111.
Suggested donation: adults $15, youth 16 and under $10.
The Forest Service at Snoqualmie offers other outings, too, including photography walks, nordic-skiing trips and events geared to children and schools.
This year, the Northwest Avalanche Center and the Forest Service will offer six snowshoe walks in which the focus is on avalanche awareness.
