Lena Lake


Day Hike - Lena Lake

Reports indicate that this is a fine winter destination and I’ve not yet had the pleasure of viewing Lena Lake, so let’s go! It is usually extra chilly near the water so we’ll take fewer, shorter stops to keep warm.

We’ll meet at 6:15am, ready to depart at 6:30 am, at the South Hill Park and Ride, 9th Street SW and 31st Avenue SW (formerly known as 104th Street SW and 104th Street E - the City of Puyallup incorporated the area, hence the new street names and confusion).  This is the Park & Ride on the north side of Hwy 512 and we’ll meet in the NW area of the lot, look for the red Ford Explorer.  Carpools are encouraged but not required.  If you choose to drive, you will need a Northwest Forest Pass.  

This is a new area for me so we’ll be discovering it (or re-discovering it if you’ve been there before) together.  Because the snow level is sufficiently high, microspikes are not required at this time.  However, I’ll keep an eye on the snow level and let you know if microspikes become required.
