7:30 AM at Junction of SR 410 & SR 165 in Buckley
This is one of my favorite places in MRNP, with spectacular rock and ice views. If you've never been, trust me, you'll enjoy it. We may be late in the season for wildflowers, but fall color in Spray Park is nice, too. We will hike together as a group and take a lunch break somewhere in Spray Park. My planned turnaround point is the high point of the trail at 6360 feet. Everyone needs to have appropriate gear including the Ten Essentials. A Mt Rainier Pass, National Park pass, or $15 day pass is needed for each vehicle parked at the trailhead at Mowich Lake. We will consolidate vehicles at the meetup point. If you are willing to drive from the P&R; and already have a pass, please indicate so when signing up.

Where/When to Meet 7:30 AM at the junction of SR 410 & SR 165 in Buckley. There is a little parking lot (Google Map) along the Foothills (bike) Trail on the south side of the intersection. From there it is about an hour’s drive to Mowich Lake.
