Header image reading: The Transit Trekker Manual, your guide to car-free recreation. Coming Soon! Washington State. There's a plain black silhouette icon of Washington state.

“As someone who can’t drive and loves to be outside walking, running and biking, there is a real lack of awareness of how difficult it is to get to ‘outdoor’ opportunities without a car. Kimberly has tapped into a deep need here, both for those of us who don’t have other options, and those who want to recreate more sustainably. And after joining her in one of her Transit Treks last fall, I can tell you she is a super organized planner who doesn’t leave any detail, from where to recharge batteries to where to find a good beer, unconsidered. I can’t wait to use these treks to access new and beautiful places throughout our state and our country!”

— Anna Zivarts, Seattle

It seemed like a small but potentially effective way to share information about transit-accessible trails and to plant the seed in more folks’ minds that transit to trails is a thing you…

Now There’s A Transit Trekking Resource Page

I’ve found some jewels that make identifying transit-accessible hiking and other outdoor exploration around the U.S. much easier and compiled them in this resource page. It lives in the main site navigation but I thought I should highlight here. For now, it’s super simple, in an alpha list by state. Canada welcome, too — I…

Surf Report and Survey

I mentioned I’ve been making a point of writing trip reports over at the Washington Trails Association (WTA) site. I had to run some errands in Port Townsend the other day and so had some time to check out a short beach hike. Here’s the trip report. Pro-tip for transit trekkers planning a day trip…
