Bellingham Senior Trailblazers

A Whatcom County Hiking Club

The Senior Trailblazers are hikers from the Bellingham Senior Activity Center who hike each week to get exercise, experience the beautiful local scenery and socialize. The hikes are mostly in the lowlands during the colder months and into the regions near Mt. Baker in the summer.

We are easing back into more normal operations for fully vaccinated hikers but things are still a bit helter-skelter. The BSAC opens at 9:00am; until further notice, groups headed into the Cascades will gather in the small BSAC parking lot off New Street. Plan to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time to finalize destinations and arrange carpools.
