Monroe Park and Ride 7:00 AM. This should put us at the trailhead around 10:00 AM. Northwest Forest Pass required at the trailhead.

We will follow the trail along Icicle Creek. There are falls to visit, and numerous campsites to check out for a future backpack trip. Our destination will be the bridge spanning Icicle Creek. 

The hike will be at a casual pace, but it is long. Please make sure you are able to hike up to 10 miles when signing up for the hike. If you can't hike slow, you may be happier on another hike.
