August 20, 2002, Noble Knob Hike 10am @ Wapiti Woolies in Greenwater
This is our big high elevation summer hike. It is 5 miles round trip with 950′ of elevation gain and tops out at 6000′ with magnificent views of the Cascades peaks and Mt. Rainier. There are roots, rocks and other minor obstacle to help you improve balance and make dopamine. The trailhead is 15 +/- miles up a bumpy gravel forest service road off of hwy 410. The turn is just past Greenwater and easy to miss. There is no wifi signal in the area. So we meet at Wapiti Woolies and follow each other to the turn. Where there’s room to park a few cars and we’ll carpool up from there. Parking is limited at the trail head and a NW forest pass is needed. NO restrooms at a trailhead. Dogs are ok.

WINTER SNOW FUN
Every winter we try to go snowshoeing or Cross Country skiing several times. Because these depends on the weather, specific dates are difficult to plan in advance. Contact Brian if you want to be put on a last minute email list. If the weather is looking favorable and you have time to go, anyone can “reply to all” and see who else has interest for that weekend. There is a $120 season snow park pass (Or $20+ per day, per car) that is needed at all of the 3 locations we go to along I-90. Carpooling can also be arranged.
If you don’t own your gear but have interest in attending. The group has enough snow shoes no one should ever have to rent them. Cross country gear will need to be rented prior to the date. Brian can give you advice on rental facilities.
