8:00 AM at Parking lot in front of Starbucks, located next to the North Bend Safeway store
Snow shoe trip to Box Creek at Kachess Lake. Easy, relaxed pace and a level family-type hike. We’ll meet in front of Starbucks under the clock tower in the North Bend Safeway parking lot at 8:00 am. Take I-90 exit 31, turn North to N. Bend. Take a right at the first light and pass McDonalds. Safeway is on your left. We’ll then carpool from North Bend. We’ll take I-5 exit 62 and drive as far as possible toward Kachess Lake. From there we’ll snowshoe to Box Creek at Lake Kachess, about 3 miles, level terrain (est. 4-6 mi round trip, leisurely pace). Bring a lunch, plenty of water, and of course layered winter clothing that you can peel off and stuff into your daypack. Bring a sit pad if you wish. If you need to borrow my extra pair of snow shoes, let me know. We may decide to get coffee and a snack at the Snoqualmie Ski lodge or restaurant on the way back. If we do, attendance is optional. Contact me with any questions. Gary Zink, 253-631-4004.
