About this event

Join Us for an Adventure to Kula's Hidden Gems

We're tempted to keep our favorite hikes a secret. But that feels a little selfish. So, we’ve created Kula’s Hidden Gems exclusively for eight adventurers that are willing to take a blood oath to not tell a soul AND to leave them better than they found them.

Each month, we will take eight souls on a super-secret adventure to a place of great beauty. We won’t disclose the location of the hike until a few days before we meet. And we won’t share a photo of the location. You’ll have to trust us. And we’ll have to trust you.

If you have an adventurous spirit and want to see a few of our favorite places… register quickly these will fill fast.

Here are the Rules

These are our favorite places. We don’t want to spoil them. To do that, we will require you to take a blood oath stating the following:

  1. That you will not share the location
  2. You will not post photos of these locations on Instagram or other social media platforms
  3. That you are fit and healthy – these are difficult hikes that include very steep, rugged and difficult terrain.
  4. You have to commit to the hike. If you cannot make the date, do NOT register for the hike.
  5. These hikes will likely involve early mornings, late evenings, and depending on where you live… may involve driving long distances in the state of Washington.

Approximate location of Our First Hidden Gem: Overnight Backpacking Trip

Located in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness - more information will be provided a few days before the hike to registered hikers.

Mileage: 15 miles round-trip

Elevation: Gain 4,000

A Little More Information: Since this trail is long and the destination so beautiful, we will stay the night in order to better enjoy the experience. Be prepared to have everything you will need for an overnight trip: Tent, sleeping bag/pad, trekking poles, warm clothing, stove, a good meal, lots of snacks, and your 10 essentials.

What we can promise if Mother Nature Cooperates: A tough climb that requires route finding and some scrambling with light exposure. Mountain views, alpine lakes, and granite tarns.

Although we are hiking together, this is a self guided hike - meaning that you are expected to be responsible for yourself. More information about the trip will be provided two-three days prior to the trip. Please be prepared for a very difficult, yet stunning hike.

What to bring:

Your Kula, Tent, Sleeping Bag, trekking poles, warm clothing, stove, a good meal, water, lots of snacks, and your 10 essentials: Headlamp, Navigation, Sun Protection, First Aid, Knife, Fire, Shelter, Extra Food, Extra Water, Extra Clothes.

We will provide more information about the trip a 2-4 days before the adventure.
