Day Hike - Clark's Creek Park

Kicking off Hike-a-thon with a midweek adventure, by taking the less-traveled version of the Clark's Creek Trail and finding some hidden gems like the hatchery bridge, the hidden swings and the biggest tree in the park.

We'll meet at the north entrance to the park, 2002 7th Ave SW, Puyallup, over by the tennis courts at 4:30pm, ready to hike at 4:45pm.  

I'm wearing lightweight long pants for this one as the less-traveled trails have some overgrown nettles that can be itchy.  We'll also be climbing over some downed trees and going up & down some fairly steep inclines.
