Hi there backpackers! We'll meet at 7:00 a.m. at Park-N-Ride in Lacey. From I-5 exit 111, turn right on Marvin Rd then right on Hogum Bay Dr NE. Address is 2548 Hogum Bay Dr NE.  I'll be in a silver Toyota FJ Cruiser. We'll caravan to arrive at trailhead around 8:30. If you're traveling from the south or other location where Park-N-Ride isn't on the way, please let me know so I can plan on meeting you at trailhead.


This is a moderate hike at a leisurely pace, appropriate for most hikers. Permits are $8 per person, I will take care of permits and collect at trailhead. I will contact everyone via email with more details as the date approaches.
