We will be meeting at the main trailhead at 8:00 AM (referred to "Bayview" on map).  There is an occasionally maintained porto in the parking lot.   No passes are required for parking.          

There is a drive thru espresso stop in Port Gamble that's usually open (in front of Butcher & Baker building); and later after the hike if you're going to be on the road, the General Store has coffee and sandwiches...

Please be prepared for winter conditions and bring your trekking poles.  There are areas that could be muddy or slippery.   We will be following a route that allows social distancing (remember your face covering) and some pretty woodsy trail on the last 2.0 miles that avoids the families and late starters.  

On a clear day there are peekaboos of Mt Rainier, Olympics, and Cascades/Glacier Peak...
