The Kent Senior Activity Center offers an Outdoor Recreation program with all types of options for people ages 50 and older.
People can sign up for day trips, hiking, golfing, snow sports, fishing and other activities throughout the year.
In October, the Senior Center took a group took a hike at Heybrook Ridge in Snohomish County with views of Mount Index and the Skykomish Valley.
“The view was incredible,” according to Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services, which oversees the program.
