This hike can be very popular with challenging parking, so we'll be starting early ready to hike at 8am.  Meet at the trailhead on Chuckanut Drive (NOT Samish Overlook). If you're driving on a gravel/dirt road, you are going to the wrong trailhead. Those wishing to carpool will meet earlier at the Ash Way P&R. More information to come in the "Hello Hiker" email to registered participants.

No pass required to park on Chuckanut Drive. There are no facilities at the trailhead, but we will be passing by toilets on the later half of our hike.
