Meet-up Spot:  Enumclaw Ranger Station (450 Roosevelt Ave E, Enumclaw WA 98022) at 7:00 a.m which is the last place with cell phone coverage. I will be in a blue minivan. Once everyone is signed in we will head up to Sunrise.

The hike will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m from the Sunrise Visitor Center (State Route 410 E, Enumclaw, WA 98022). We will meet at the Flag pole next to the bathrooms.

Bring sun protection and sunscreen as the trail can be dusty and dry, and is exposed with very little shade.  There is a climb to get out of the sunrise area then a descent to Berkeley Camp where we will stop for a snack. The elevation gain is on the return in full sun so we will take our time with rest stops as needed.

Hike email will be sent out the Thursday before the hike. If you do not receive an email contact the leader directly.
