What you'll do
I will meet you in downtown Tacoma and we will travel to Point Defiance Park in my vehicle. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery as we travel to the Park, and I will share some history of the areas we are traveling through. Once we are at the Park, I will pick the best trail for the day and your particular interests. We will hike in a beautiful old growth forest with tall trees, ferns, birds, deer, and more. Our hike will be anywhere from 1 - 3.5 miles (this can be adapted to your pace and interests). I am happy to share my knowledge of the plants, birds and landscape as we travel. We can also enjoy the beautiful silence as we wander and explore. At the end of our hike, we will enjoy a lovely drive through Point Defiance Park with some scenic vista stops as we make our way back to downtown Tacoma. You also have the option to stay longer in the Park and make your own way back.
I am in love with nature and spend every moment I can exploring the beauty of our amazing World. I have lived 29 years in the Pacific Northwest, the last 12 years have been in the Tacoma area. I currently own and operate a business guiding others to Mt. Rainier National Park for a full day trip. When not traveling to The Mountain, you will find me exploring local parks or other places in Washington and beyond. I am the first to admit that I am a coffee snob and truly enjoy great food, beer, wine and music. Tacoma is a hidden gem and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Where you'll be
Point Defiance was established in 1888 with 760 acres protected for use as a city park. It has a huge network of trails, scenic vistas and waterfront. You can truly spend an entire day or days getting to know this gem of an urban park. In the time we have together, we will enjoy the best trail for the day based on weather, hiking abilities and interests. We will keep our eyes out for black-tailed deer, bald eagles, amazing plants and more.
