Lots of options for distance and elevation gain with the trail system in the Park. Map and understanding of basic navigation recommended for this trip - there are lots of trail junctions. Download map at the bottom of the webpage: http://www.metroparkstacoma.org/five-mile-drive; walk in shade of trees with stops at viewpoints. Rhododendrons blooming in April. Huckleberries in Aug-Sep. Also in 50 Trail Runs in Washington

Join us to shake the kinks out, keep in shape or get back in shape, try out new boots or other gear, etc. There are numerous trails at Pt. Defiance; this trip will be 5 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain; total time about 4 hours. We'll hike, at a SLOW leisurely pace, through the forest at Pt. Defiance with a stop at Fort Nisqually for a lunch/snack break. We will hike together as a group making lots of stops along the way to admire the views, make equipment adjustments, catch our breath, etc... More
