Bremerton National Airport 8:00am.  Those of you coming from Seattle, you can walk on the 6:10am ferry to Bainbridge Island and I can pick you up at 7:00am (limited availability, contact me to confirm).


This is a strenuous hike not suited for beginners.  Be prepared for 3 hours of steep uphill hiking, some of it over a rocky trail.  If the weather favors us, you will be rewarded with great views of the Olympics, Lake Cushman and Hood Canal.  Please note: the map for this activity shows it leaving from the upper trailhead, but in fact we are leaving from the lower trailhead.
