We will leave Martin Way Park and Ride at 7:00am so be there a few minutes before 7:00.  


We will drive to Enumclaw and meet at the Safeway Store- in the vicinity of the gas station.  I have a red Honda HRV.  License plate starts with AZU.  We can use the Safeway Store for a rest stop and will leave the parking lot no later than 8:20.

This is a very popular hike and the parking lot at Naches Loop quickly fills up so we will take the minimum number of cars.
