We will meet at the Puyallup South Hill Park N Ride, at 7:30 AM to car pool to the trailhead. This Park N Ride is located near the South Hill Mall, on Hwy 512, near exit to S 94th St. going east on Hwy 512.

We will meet at 7:30 AM to car pool, then drive Hwy 512 to State Hwy 410, then through Sumner, Bonny Lake, and Greenwater. I am anticipating that the ground might be 'moist', and while hoping for good weather, rain gear is still advised. We will spend most of the day on trail, so bring your food, camera, and good attitude.

Youth (kids) 6 years and older may participate.
