Event description

Description

"Doing what we love to fight what we hate" As a Freedom Hiker, we are using our passion for hiking to help raise awareness ad funds to fight human trafficking and help set women and children free from sexual slavery.

Come and join the adventure and help us raise awareness for anti-human trafficking in 2020!

As a Freedom Hiker, you will have access to fundraising tools and resources to help you make a difference. We work as a team to share our message and encourage friends and family to learn more how they too can help. Then together in August, we will hike ~23 miles of the Wonderland Trail at Mount Rainier National Park to celebrate and share our message #forfreedom along the trail in some of the most beautiful parts of Washington!

Nobody deserves to live a life of slavery, and we are doing something about it. Will you join us?

WONDERLAND 2020 Freedom Hike: Wonderland Trail via Summerland to Reflection Lake

We will start our journey at the trailhead to Summerland. Along the beautiful trail we will trek through Panhandle Gap which is the highest point of the Wonderland Trail sitting at 6,750 feet. You will see Mount Rainier up close and personal! We will come through Indian Bar, Box Canyon, and will end at Reflection Lake! We will travel through many different eco systems and will see old growth forests, rivers, creeks, meadows, rocky exposed areas, some snow, waterfalls, countless flowers, and beautiful lakes! We will climb 4200' along the way and travel around 23 miles all in one day. We could possibly see lots of wildlife on the trail. Mount Rainier has it all. Marmots are extremely common and they love the wildflowers. The wildflower season should be at it's peak while we are hiking and it certainly puts on a show.
