We will meet at 8:30 at the Verlot Ranger Station and go from there to the trailhead.  It takes approximately 59 minutes from Bothell with light traffic to get to the Verlot Ranger Station (Verlot Public Service Center.  Times will vary according to distance traveled to Verlot.  One way to the Service Center from Bothell is 42 miles.  Google Maps provides alternate routes and times.

I will be contracting the Verlot Ranger Station for updates on trail and snow conditions.

National Forest Pass will be needed.

The weather noted at this time is sunny for the 26th.  As we are at the end of November it is always wise to carry rain gear and to wear over the ankle hiking boots.  I am also suggesting strongly that you have Yak Tracks or Micro Spikes along.  We may encounter snow, but even if we only have a layer of ice the Yak Tracks or Micro Spikes will give you better traction.  I am also suggesting hiking poles.  The Ten Essentials are always advised.  We will have time for lunch at the lake and breaks as needed.
