Mountaineers tread lightly on the earth – on the trail and on the road

Puget Sounders love to enjoy our beautiful natural environment.  To help preserve that experience for future generations, the Mountaineers, Washington’s pre-eminent outdoor recreation club, encourages folks to carpool or vanpool to the trailhead, events and meetings. 

Carpooling is good for the earth and sets a good example for kids.

You’ll reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the environment we all enjoy.  Plus, you’ll save money and have more time to spend with your fellow hikers than if you drive separately.  The Mountaineers provides a ride-matching service, guidelines and more. 

Read about this effort in the December Walk Bike Rider e-newsletter.   You’ll also find useful and quick tips, tools and inspiration to help you get around by foot, bike and transit. To receive this free e- newsletter, subscribe here.
