We will meet at the South Tacoma Way Park N Ride just south of Hwy 512, at 8:00 AM. We will then car  pool to the trailhead. Drivers need to have a WA State Discover Pass to park at trailhead. Families with children and dogs on an 8' leash are allowed.

this trail goes up alongside a ridge, through wooded and open areas, then returns on the other side of the ridge, again through wooded and open areas making a nice loop hike. Moderate incline for the most part. I will be bringing my camera so I will likely stop now and then to take a picture. You're welcome to bring yours.
