This is a CHS2 pacing hike. We'll hike out and back to Debbie's View which is a delightful lookout point with views of Mount Rainier and the surrounding foothills. From the trailhead our route will follow Margaret's Way to its end, then we will turn right on Chybinski, then right on the Perimeter Loop, followed by another right to reach our midway point at Debbie's View. We'll take a short 15-20 minutes break for snacks or an early lunch before returning back the way we came. Roundtrip mileage clocks in at just over 6 miles.
