This is a one-way trip from Lake Forest Park to Woodinville.  I will begin the trip by meeting at the Woodinville Park and Ride and taking the Sound Transit 522 bus to Lake Forest Park.  We then walk back.  Participants are welcome to join me for the pre-trip bus shuttle.  Others are welcome to meet at Lake Forest Park Town Center and begin the trip there.  The parking at the Town Center is for those shopping there.  So I can not recommend that folks park there.  I do not know of other allowed parking there.  If you choose that option, I can shuttle up to four participants back to the Lake Forest Park at the end of the trip (from Woodinville) if they would like.  Please let me know if you would like a ride back with me.  For those starting at Woodinville on the bus-the fare is $3.25 .  Bring cash or your ORCA card.

Meet at 11:30 AM at:  Woodinville Park & Ride, 17800 140th Ave NE, Woodinville  the bus is scheduled to leave at 11:36 AM and arrive at Lake Forest Park at 12:05 PM
Meet at Noon at:  Lake Forest Park Town Center  17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155.  I will clarify the meeting spot in the a subsequent email.  Meet at the Bus stop at the Northwest quadrant of the intersection of  Bothell Way and  Ballinger Way (HWY 104).  The bus, I and others will be on, is scheduled to arrive at 12:05 PM.  We will cross the street there together and begin our walk.

Enjoy a lovely paved trail, views of the river, multiple parks and the lively, new development in Woodinville.  See the Directions section above for the shuttle details and bus information.
