7:00 AM at the Winco in Sumner (6621 166th Ave E, Sumner) to caravan up to the trail head.  The last 7 miles is rough unpaved road.  Although I've seen Prius' (Prii?) up there, I suggest a high clearance vehicle.  I have seats available in my truck.  

Northwest Forest Pass required to park.

We will be walking around the lake so we get the summit and great views.  Doing the loop steps it up a notch so make sure you are ready for some simple scrambling and a 6 mile day.
