For folks in the North, we'll meet in the southwest corner of Ash Way park and ride (16327 Ash Way, Lynnwood, WA 98087) at 7am.   For everyone else, we'll meet at Enumclaw Ranger Station on SR 410 ( 450 Roosevelt Ave E, Enumclaw, WA 98022) at 8:30am to arrange optional carpools and caravan to trailhead.  Northwest Forest Pass required at trailhead.

This is an exploratory trip to start at the south end of the Skookum flats trail for a longer hike of  7.8 miles roundtrip.  Falls may not have a lot of flow at this time.
Plan on an after hike stop in Greenwater for huckleberry ice cream at Wapiti Woolies and for those interested, in Enumclaw for food and drink.
We will hike at a relaxed  pace, so if you're a fast hiker you'll be happier on another hike.
