Parking pass: Northwest Forest Pass

There are toilets at the trailhead.

Bring your own lunch, snacks, and water.  If we make good time on the trail, we will try to stop for ice cream or similar on the way home.  We will not stop for breakfast or dinner.

I don't expect snow to be an issue.  If we encounter snow that requires microspikes, we will turn around.
