We will meet at the Puyallup South Hill Park N Ride at 7:30 AM to car pool to the hike. The Park N Ride is located off of Hwy 512 at 94th Ave. West (coming from Tacoma) or the Eatonville exit (coming from the east).

While an 'easy' hike, do bring the 10 essentials, and wet weather gear (after all, it's still 'winter-spring'). We will likely be traveling from the southern end (starting at FS road 7160) north towards Skookum Falls and return. The trail is easy to follow as it winds alongside the White River -occasional views along the way.  Youth OK to bring!
