 BY REGISTERING THIS LEADER CONSIDERS YOU MADE A COMMITMENT TO THE TRIP. It's only good form to cancel in the event of an injury, illness or an emergency. Even if there are people on the wait list it's often difficult to move them up close to the trip date. THANK YOU!

We will follow the new Frog Loop Trail. This is a 9 mile round trip section of the Kent Valley Loop Trails system. We will access it from the parking lot in front of Panera Bread in the Kent Station complex in downtown Kent.

The loop including Riverview Park and Van Doren's Landing Park. It's all paved and flat. We will hike along sections of the Green River Trail, Puget Power Trail and Interurban Trial.  I plan that we will have lunch about 2/3rds of the way round at Van Doren's Landing Park.

I propose to lead the trip at a moderate pack: approximately 2 mph average moving speed. As it's 9 miles round trip a good level or fitness and stamina is required.

Full trip details will be send out as soon as registration closes on May 1. I will provide copies of the City of Kent Parks and Facilities Guide that shows our route.
