  • Easy, Easy/Moderate
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 2.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 500 ft
  • Pace: easy but intentional

We will meet at the Puyallup/South Hill Park N Ride, near Hwy 512 and 94th Street, to car pool and depart at 7:30 AM. Drivers need a Mt. Rainier Park pass and must carry tire chains. We will likely stop for coffee or a warming drink afterwards on the way home.

This is to get out and enjoy Mt. Rainier and become 'refreshed' on snowshoe techniques.  We will go into Edith Basin from Paradise at an easy but effective pace, distance will depend upon conditions and the group. Beginners are also welcome as also kids with guardians. I will also bring my camera to take pictures, so bring yours as well.
