US Forest Service Ranger Station in Enumclaw at 7:00 am

450 Roosevelt Ave E, Enumclaw, WA 98022

This hike is relatively short and easy at 4 miles and 1000 feet of gain.   Note that most of the gain occurs over a short distance as we ascend the butte.  We can meet at the U.S. Forest Service Ranger Station at 7:00 am to carpool.  The hope is to make this a pleasant morning hike so we are back home for the afternoon holiday festivities.

NOTE:  Please do not bring any fireworks with you on this trip.  

This can also be a warm up hike for my Saturday Crystal Peak hike. ;)
