We will meet at the Puyallup South Hill Park N Ride (Hwy 512 and 94th Ave. E) at 7:30 AM to car pool to Paradise! Entrance Fee required for drivers, as well as tire chains for all vehicles.

From Seattle, Foothills branches, drive south on Hwy 167 from Renton, transitioning to Hwy 512 (follow signs to Puyallup, Olympia, Portland), take the Eatonville exit, at end of off ramp (traffic light) turn right and follow the street as it curves left. At next traffic light go straight, park N ride will be to your left, entrance at the west side.


This starts out relatively 'level' but then with some 'up'! We will be gone essentially all day (close to six hours) so please do not schedule a 'must attend' for the evening.

Pace will be somewhat easy/moderate (as fast as I can go) but intentional as we need to head toward our destination! If sunny, great views! Preference will be given to Tacoma Basic Snowshoe students until Feb. 5. After this date, anyone may participate!
