If you are coming across on the 7:10 am Edmonds/Kingston ferry and you want to walk on, I can pick you up when you land in Kingston.  I have room for 3 in my car.

A nice walk along the beautiful Gray Wolf River through old growth Conifers with occasional views of surrounding mountains.  The trail is at times fairly level, and at times meanders up and down a few hills to a point 4.2 miles in where a bridge used to cross a narrow gorge.  This will be our turn around point.  We may see a few woodland flowers along the way.  8.4 miles total.
