Longmire Inn parking lot, next to the museum, at 9:30am. Depending upon weather, we might have to wait for the gate on the road to open so we can get up to Narada Falls. If you have a Twitter account, you can follow @MountRainierNPS for park conditions and road closures and gate openings.

We will carpool as needed from Longmire and drive up to Narada Falls parking lot. Try to park as close to the warming hut as possible (at the North end of the parking lot). We will work our way up to the Stevens Canyon Road, and make a right towards Reflection Lakes. At that junction or very close to it, there should be a trail intersection so that we can travel up and around the 5370' bump that will be between us and Reflection Lakes at that point. I'd like to take that route around to the east side of that bump and to the lake. We can take the road back when the group is tired. The gain on the trip is a little less than 600' and the round-trip distance is about 3.25 miles.
