Meet at the park office at 2:00 PM at Tolmie State park. The office is located about 100 yard from the large entrance sign.  

We will be meeting with Park Ranger Joe Moses who will be showing and describing some of the park needs that can be shouldered by volunteers.  We will be walking at a tour pace - stop and go. 

Our focus will be on documenting trail problems and identifying possible solutions.  There are about 3 miles of trails that need attention; two loops are in the wooded wetlands and a shorter trail leading to an expansive shoreline of Puget Sound'

The trail system has a number of large muddy lowland sections.  Plan to get your boots muddy.

The Ten Essentials

We will be carrying a day pack with water, snacks and the usual hiking  essentials.  Golly , I can only hope to see some signs of wildlife. The park is rural setting  on the edge of wild as housing developments approach closer every year.
