  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,100 ft
  • Pace: slow to moderate pace (as fast as I can go)

We will meet at the Tacoma Community College Park N Ride, corner of 19th Street and Pearl Streets (in the transit center) at 7:30 AM (yes, early!) to car pool to the trailhead at the Staircase, Olympics NP. Drivers will need to have an appropriate National Parks pass or purchase one when arriving.

This will be somewhat exploratory. Also, there will be some 'up' encountered. Be prepared for a scenic view so bring your camera .
