Hey, my name is Tim, and I'm new to the PNW. Just moved to Olympia area in April. I love hiking, rock climbing, camping, and mountaineering - I just don't know anyone up here yet. I have a doggo, Strider, who is a beautiful and friendly blue heeler that joins me frequently on dog-friendly trails.

I have a family, wife and kids, that I love to camp and hike with. But I'm hoping to find a new partner(s) in longer treks like a Rainier summit, some 20+ mile backpacking trips over the weekend, or rock climbing trips to BC/Oregon.

Hope to see some of y'all out on the trails soon!

Hey, welcome Tim! I may be able to connect with you, I'm out visiting the kids in the Olympia area occasionally. I'll watch for reports from you.

C ya,

Hello and welcome to the site. wink.gif

Close in - short drives, low elevation, relatively flat terrain, easy peasy for kids:

Capitol State Forest
Millersylvania State Park
Nisqually Wildlife Refuge
Scatter Creek Wildlife Area
Mima Mounds! (fascinating for kids)

(NO idea what regulations are concerning dogs at any of those areas.)

I just learned about this one but have not visited there yet.
Dogs are allowed off-leash:

You arrived just in time for the monsoon season. up.gif

And interesting for us "older kids" also.

... forgot to mention:

Per my phone conversation with a WDFW staff member, there are Mima mounds at the West Rocky Prairie Wildlife Area as well - which is east of I-5.
