Meet at Enumclaw Ranger Station (450 Roosevelt Ave E, Enumclaw, WA) at 6:00am.

I take a leisurely to moderate pace, so I rate this 'moderate'.  I'm hoping to beat some of the August heat by choosing a route in the trees.  Be prepared for the heat and bugs near the lake.  I like to stop at Wapiti Woolies in Greenwater for ice cream after the hike.
