Group hikes are supportive experiences. The group hikes together – we won’t leave you behind!
Where: Rialto Beach, Mora Rd., Forks, WA
When: Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 6:30pm
Trail Description: Rialto is a mix of compact, smooth stones and deep, wet sand and pebble mix. This is low tide, so there will be more sandy area to walk on, or we can stick to the rocky area depending on needs. We will hike as far as the group is comfortable.
What to bring: water, picnic/snack food, hiking essentials, anything you need to feel comfortable
Pets: Service animals always welcome. Pets are allowed 1 mile to Ellen Creek.
Cost: Donation of $1-10 suggested.
Parking: Carpooling is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. There is a paved lot on the right with one handicap/van accessible spot near the restrooms. There is a large gravel parking lot on the left. Parking gets very full during the summer. You may use this event page to coordinate carpooling.
This group is created for people with disabilities. We welcome anyone who needs a group of supportive, slow moving hikers. We also welcome those who are new to hiking and supportive friends and family. The group matches the pace of the ‘slowest’ hiker, takes a break whenever someone needs one, and adjusts the hike to meet individual needs.
Disabled Hikers is an inclusive group. All of our hikes begin with a moment to honor the ancestral people of the land and their living descendants, and introductions with name and pronouns. You will also be welcomed to share a bit about why you are here. There is never any pressure to share anything, and if you want to be anonymous that is okay too.
Other things to keep in mind:
- Please read the hike description. Trails are chosen to be as enjoyable as possible for the most folks, but only you can decide if a hike is appropriate for you.
- Please do not offer anyone advice or assistance without asking first.
- If you have questions at any time, please ask. We’re here for you!
