Are you ready for Pass to Pass 2021?!?

We are recruiting participants for up to  7  hikes in 2021 (Parkinson’s hikers/Parkies, support hikers and Trail Angels).   Check out the trip dates and descriptions below as we plan for Summer 2021.  Indicate your interest on our Contact Page  and we will send out our application profile packet. We had a great time on these same trails last year and expect another season of epic hiking on our new trails too.

Support hikers are expected to assist Parkies when needed. While Parkies should be fully capable of hiking on their own, PD carries with it a fair amount of uncertainty as to what debilitating motor symptoms and non-motor symptoms may crop up.  That is why we need the support hikers for carrying a little extra, setting up camp, filtering water and guiding people across difficult trail sections, etc.
