We will meet at the trailhead at 5:00pm.  Boots on trail by 5:15. 

Take Exit 17 off of I-90 and turn south onto Front Street. To reach the northern trailhead, turn left at the light at Sunset Way and in two blocks turn right on 2nd Ave SE. In about 0.3 miles, turn left on SE Evans Street. The pavement ends beyond 4th Pl SE (watch for potholes). Follow SE Evans Street as it eventually bends sharply to the right and, beyond the Sportsmen's Club, dead ends at the trailhead. There is room for about six cars to park at the trailhead, and room for many more along the wide shoulders of the approaching street. There are no facilities here.

This will be a fast paced hike to avoid returning in the dark. Headlamps will be required.
