Mt Zion trailhead, meet 9:30am, on the trail by 9:45.  I will provide directions via email later.  We are not allowed to "facilitate" car pooling, but I can take 2 or 3 with me from Edmonds or Kingston (proof of vaccination required if you are riding with me).

After reaching the summit of Mt Zion we will continue a further 1/2 mile to an outcropping with views of Mt Townsend, where we will have lunch. Please be prepared with the 10 essentials, plus have a face covering to use while passing others on the trail.
