Hike Start Time: 7:00 am

Trip will initially open to Tacoma Branch Conditioning Hiking Students.  Trip will open for registration to all Mountaineers, based on availability, 7-10 days prior to date of the hike.

We will move at a brisk pace and take fewer breaks along the way. The idea is to get to a scenic viewpoint, take a longer snack break and do a little exploring.  Consider whether this plan is a good fit for your preferred style of hiking. 

Please follow the Mountaineers' latest Covid-19 Code of Conduct. We're going on the honor system, vaccination status will not be checked.
