8:00am at the North Viking Transit Center, 21992 Viking Ave. NW in Poulsbo, north of Rte. 305.  If you are coming from the Seattle or Edmonds area and want to walk on the 7:10 Edmonds/Kingston ferry I can pick you up on the Kingston Side.  Please let me know in advance. 

This is not a long hike, but it is strenuous.  Please be in good physical condition to do it.  Hiking poles are helpful.  We will hike up to the sign, beyond which the hike becomes a scramble.  We won't go beyond the sign.  Afterwards, we'll walk to Marymere  Falls, nearby, and over to the Lake Crescent lodge if time allows, and the group wants to do it.
