Meet at 9:30 AM at the trailhead parking lot, reached from I-90 Exit 47.  Turn right at the end of the exit and then left at the T junction.  The parking lot is at the end of the road.  

Annette Lake is one of the premiere hiking destinations near Seattle and Tacoma.  It is within an hour's drive of both cities and provides a breath-taking view at the end of  the pleasant hike in.  If the weather cooperates, we will have an opportunity for a swim at the lake.  There is a restroom at the trailhead and an outhouse at the lake.  The Northwest Forest Pass or equivalent must be displayed by each car at the trailhead.
