Meet at the Bonney Lake Park and Ride at 8:30 nearest the gas station.   Hwy 410 and Sky Island.

We can consolidate vehicles if you want to carpool to the trailhead.  Each vehicle will need a forest pass or we'll need to purchase them in the town of Greenwater.

This hike is outside of the towns of Enumclaw and Greenwater on Hwy 410.  It's short.  It's easy.  It's pretty.  It's the perfect trail to test your gear or your condition without being too miserable if gear (or you) fail.  Leader hikes at a slow pace and we go at the pace of the slowest hiker.  Afterwards, we'll stop at Wapiti Woolies for an after hike latte or smoothie.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.  No calls after 8:30 p.m. please.  E-mail preferred:  kwon1962@yahoo.com
