8:30 AM at Point Defiance Fort Nisqually picnic area
This is a great beginner hike, and easy enough for older hikers and many children. The roads into the park are closed until 1 pm, providing an aura of safety and quiet. Be sure to bring water and snacks for the walk and dress for the weather (in your best 1912 style!). We'll hike as a group at a leisurely/moderate pace with lots of stops.
