We will meet at the Park N Ride behind McDonald's near intersection of I-5 and Hwy 512 in Tacoma, WA., at 7:30 AM. We will then car pool to trailhead at Capitol Forest south of Olympia, WA. via I-5, then through town of Littlerock, WA.

A somewhat exploratory trip to a 'little falls' located within the Capitol Forest. Map may be obtained from 1) on-line sources that you use, 2) purchase  DNR map located in Littlerock grocery store. Given weather instability be sure to bring all season gear. Easy/moderate pace. Bring a camera as well for possible photography. Youth 10+ years OK. We may, depending upon interest and time, visit Mima Mounds!
