Meet in south section of Eastmont Park & Ride (exit 189 of I-5 in south Everett) at 7:00am to form carpools.   The mountaineers no longer arranges carpools. It is up to participants to get to the pre-arranged meeting place where carpools to the trailhead will be formed. Please ensure you can find and arrive at the meeting place before joining the hike.

Trail has many small ups and downs meandering alongside the river. Hopefully we’ll find Fall color and it’s a good trail for finding mushrooms.  I'll bring a water filter if you don't want to carry a ton of water.
