gettting there

From US-2 in Baring, near Milepost 4 and across from Der Baring Store, turn north onto 635th Pl NE and cross the railroad tracks. In 0.25 mile, turn left onto Forest Road 6034 and drive 4.2 miles to the trailhead (2,200 ft).

In winter, snow on the forest road varies significantly based on recent snowfall. Be prepared to park on the road and hike to trailhead.
