Directions to the trailhead from Seattle: drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Avenue and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Road (turning right at the fork) for 11.8 miles to the Middle Fork trailhead parking area on the right.  Toilets available.  Northwest Forest Pass or America the Beautiful Pass required. 

By the river and into the forest, this gorgeous hike with a thousand shades of green is one of my favorites.  More information will be emailed to registered participants.
