We will meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Ash Way Park and Ride (Ash Way & 164th St. W., Lynnwood).

This is a great fall or winter hike.  The pace will be leisurely to moderate (about 2 miles per hour).  The plan is to hike in a loop and return via the Lily Lake trail.  This will add about two miles to the hike.  In the event of heavy rain or ice, the hike location may change to Fragrance Lake.
