INFO FOR EACH PASStoPASS HIKE
We are currently accepting applications for our 2023 trips. See below for new and exciting adventure opportunities.

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, hiking a bit further, setting up camp, filtering water, guiding people across difficult trail sections, etc.
ALL HIKES SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO TRAIL CONDITIONS AND CLOSURES, SUCH AS WILDFIRES, TREES DOWN, ETC.
