I-5 Hawks Prairie Park and Ride (Lacey) at 9:00 am and other points as needed.  

This is a family hike, especially for kids, but anyone is welcome. We go the pace of the slowest person. Note that this hike is not as described in the title and detailed description. Our plan is to hike to the summit from the Hobart trailhead and back the same way, however we may loop around South Tiger depending on the group. This would add about 2 miles to the trip.
