8:00 AM, Maple Valley Park & Ride (alternate meet place for south enders if arranged in advance)

A woodland hike with beautiful waterfalls. There are views of the White River Valley and Mt. Rainier if the day is clear. This is one of my go to spring conditioning hikes. It is 10 miles past Greenwater and so not too far a drive to enjoy some wilderness before the high country melts out.
