For Carpooling, 7am at the Woodinville Sports Field 13103 NE 175th, Woodinville, 98072.  This is so everyone can be ready to go at 8am at the Lake Serene Trailhead.  Email to go out the day before. Northwest Forest Pass (or equivalent) required for each car.

This will be conversational-paced hike up to beautiful Lake Serene with a detour to see Bridal Veil Falls along the way.   We will hike together as a group, pace to the slowest person, and take breaks  along the way; however this hike has some challenging steps along the way, so everyone should have a good, basic fitness level for ascending and descending.  Once at the lake we will take lunch for about an hour and maybe go swimming. Trekking poles are highly encouraged so no-one misses a step especially on the descent.  Photography totally okay as long as it is quick and efficient.
