Meet Sunday morning at 0900 at the Safeway parking lot in Enumclaw on Hwy 410. 

I will send more info once we have a roster.

this trail continues on through to another viewpoint, and then eventually joins up with the Ranger Peak trail.  We are not going to hike the whole way through, we will hike up to the second viewpoint and then backtrack.  The first quarter mile or so of this hike is rather steep and there is a wooden set of steps to walk up. Otherwise the trail is good, but there may be some blowdowns to negotiate since trail crews have not been out yet.

Leader pace is moderate to slow-- meaning we will average about 1.5mph including stops.
