If you would like to carpool, we will be meeting at 4:00pm at the Haggen Grocery Store at 1313 Cooper Point Rd SW, Olympia, WA 98502.

The drive to Spider Lake should be about 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic and road conditions, so if you would like to meet us there, plan on being at the Spider Lake parking area around 5:45pm.

This will be an easy, social-paced hike and everyone is welcome!

Please bring a headlamp or flashlight in case we lose daylight in the trees.  Bug repellent may be a good idea as the mosquitoes appear to be out on every other trail and I doubt Spider Lake will be an exception...
