Early morning field trip to the beach. Meet at the Rose Garden Shelter at 8:30am and ready to hike by 8:45am.

This is the early morning trip.

We will be hiking in Priest Point Park to the beach at low tide to see a fun glacial outcrop! There will be slippery rocks and logs on the beach to navigate. We will probably encounter some mud on the trail and will be hiking down some wooden stairs. Be sure to bring poles for stability to help with some of the steeper areas.
