Two night moderate beginner backpack trip with preference given to members who have participated in one of Tacoma's Introduction to Hiking & Backpacking Sessions. This is an opportunity to check out how your equipment works and to refine your backpacking skills. Participants should be prepared to be self-sufficient, though leader may be able to arrange sharing gear if needed. Pre trip meeting will be arranged for consultation on gear choices and packing your backpack. We might run into snow given this year's weather patterns. Participants will share carpooling costs. We will meet in Tacoma at 7:00 a.m. Friday morning for carpooling to trailhead. Five mile hike in along the road closed in 2002 due to a washout. We will camp at the Dosewallips Campground along the river. The campground was a drive in campground when the road was open. There are picnic tables, a portapotty, food safes, and fire pits. Saturday we will hike further along the Dosewallips River. We will be returning Sunday afternoon, with a likely stop for a meal on the way home.
