6:00 AM at Poulsbo Church of the Nazarene
Optional soaking in Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort's hot pools after hike. Meet at the Sol Duc trailhead at the end of the Sol Duc road at 8:30 AM or at Poulsbo Church of the Nazarene at 6:00AM. Due to length of this hike and earlier sunsets, early departure (8:30AM) from TH is essential. Ferries do not run early enough to allow Seattle/Everett members to reach the TH on time Saturday, so car camping at Crescent Lake or Sol Duc Friday night is recommended. However, all campsites may be taken as this is Labor Day weekend, so consider reserving a motel room in Port Angeles in advance. Alternatively, leader is open to providing rides leaving Poulsbo's Church of the Nazarene park/ride lot at 6:00AM Saturday with return to Poulsbo Saturday night if Seattle/Everett members stay at Poulsbo motels. Contact leader well in advance about this. Be sure to bring plenty of water and your headlamp with extra batteries/bulb, plus food for lunch and quick dinner on the trail.
