Hi everyone, this hike is being organized as part of the Naturalist committee and as a Weed Watchers outing. The Mountaineers Weed Watchers are working with state and county organizations to locate weed and non-native plants inside designated wilderness areas in Western Washington. Find more information at
For this hike no prior experience or knowledge is required. This hike will be heavy on the botanizing and once we enter the wilderness we will pay special attention to specific weeds and non native plants. We do intend to cover the entire trail, 8 miles round trip, so we may be later back to the trail head than would be normal for a trail this length. This is a great trail through old growth forest and is a great introduction to an important mountaineers activity.
