Olympia Alpine Scramblers given first preference.

Required Equipment: ice ax, helment

I did the hike today (3 June) and there is snow on the open slopes on the last 0.5 mile to the lake. Hence I am sticking with the recommendation to bring an ice ax and helmet.

Meet at Mud Bay Park and Ride in Olympia (take 2nd Ave. SW exit off northbound US101, stay right onto Mud Bay Rd. NW then immediate left onto Madrona Beach Rd.; go about 1/4 mile to P&R).
